June 20 — School of Nursing postdoctoral scholar publishes article on fruit and vegetable vouchers Ronit Ridberg, a postdoctoral scholar and doctoral alumna of the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, published the article, “Fruit and Vegetable Vouchers in Pregnancy: Preliminary Impact on Diet and Food Security,” in the Journal of Hunger & Environmental Nutrition. The article highlights Ronit’s research exploring the impact of fruit and vegetable vouchers for pregnant women in San Francisco. Because women from underserved and low-income populations suffer a high risk of preterm birth, the program sought to reduce food insecurity through the provision of health fruits and vegetables. After following a group of 592 women who participated in the study, the researchers discovered the odds of preterm delivery were 37% lower for those women who used the fruit and vegetable vouchers. The study reveals that financial incentives for healthy foods may reduce disparities in preterm birth.
