Healthy Eating, Healthy Living Flip Chart
Those who come from abroad to resettle in the U.S. come from countries in which the food, diet and health care systems can be quite different from those in the U.S.  Establishing a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness in the U.S. can be difficult without a good understanding of how to adapt to American food and to readily access the U.S. health care system.  USCRI educates and assists refugees and immigrants to adopt good habits that help them to prevent nutrition-related disease.  USCRI also works with community-based organizations, public health officials, and local and national health policy-makers to help them recognize and address the particular barriers those newly arrived in the U.S. face in getting access to good health and health care.

Use our Nutrition Education Flip Chart to communicate culturally relevant nutrition information to refugee communities.  Case managers, ESL teachers, health clinic staff, trained volunteers, and other service providers can use this flip chart to share nutrition information with refugees.
