Successful programs for nutrition awareness and knowledge address cost, culture and behavior by:
1) creating consortiums of community based organizations.
2) forming focus groups.
3) developing programs unique to targeted communities.
4) preparing material that promotes use of new foods.
5) holding cooking classes.
6) evaluating the effectiveness of their intervention. All of these can be a part of a Medical Home that addresses the health needs of the community it serves.
