Malnutrition Prevention Commission Report Released

The 131st Ohio General Assembly passed Amended Substitute House Bill 580, and Governor John R. Kasich signed it into law on December 19, 2016, establishing the Malnutrition Prevention Commission. Am. Sub. HB 580, originally proposed by Senator Gayle Manning through separate legislation, tasked the Commission with developing recommendations to reduce the incidence of malnutrition among older Ohioans based on the Commission’s collection of information and study of malnutrition in the elderly (i.e., 60 years of age and older).

The Commission studied malnutrition as it relates to healthcare costs and data, education and awareness, and prevention. The Commission’s findings and recommendations included in this report were submitted to the Governor and the Ohio General Assembly in accordance with Ohio Revised Code 101.68 on April 16, 2018
