Roger I. Glass, MD, PhD Associate Director for International Research, NIH Director, Fogarty International Center
The Fogarty International Center is dedicated to advancing the mission of the National Institutes of Health by supporting and facilitating global health research conducted by US and international investigators, building paternerships between health research instituations in the U.S. and abroad, and training the next generation of scientists to address global health needs.
Dr. Glass was named Director of the Fogarty International Center and Associate Director for International Research by NIH Director Elias A. Zerhouni, MD, on March 31, 2006.
Dr. Glass will discuss changes in pattern of disease in developing countries and how US groups need to broaded their horizons in medicine to better understand the globalization of health problems and how global health and domestic health issues are closely interrelated. Dr. Glass will also discuss various Fogarty International Center programs in the global health field.

The Assessment of Food Environments webinar will provide information and guidance on validated tools and methods that can be used by evaluators assessing the food environment in communities. The webinar presenters will describe the various tools, how they can be used for evaluation, and insights from their experiences in using the tools in different settings. Tools discussed consist of NEMS, FoodBeams, and the Store Assessment and Monitoring System (SAMS). The webinar presenters include several experienced professionals that are able to share their own personal experiences with developing and using tools to assess food environments, including the benefitsand drawbacks of each particular tool. Dr. Latetia Moore’s research has focused on the local food environment and its association with neighborhood characteristics and food availability and the assessment of other environmental and social determinants of health that may influence the U.S. population. Erica Davis and Margaret Clawson have been working on the development, refinement, and dissemination of the NEMS measures for many years. Lisa Craypo has played a lead role in research and evaluation projects assessing school and community food environments. Details on how to view and access this webinar will be provided in an upcoming e-mail. For further information and/or questions, contact Nashawn Anderson (email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>).
*_Quick Information About Discussed Tools_*
*NEMS-S and NEMS-V*
The NEMS measures are valid and reliable tools developed by Dr. Karen Glanz and her team, which focus on surveying community and consumer nutrition environments. Information collected with NEMS tools includes the type and location of food outlets, availability of healthful choices and information, pricing, promotion, and placement of healthier food products. The two tools that will be the focus of the Webinar are the measures for stores (NEMS-S) and vending machines (NEMS-V). The NEMS tools are designed to be easily customized to suit different projects’ needs.
The web-based Food and Beverage Environment Analysis and Monitoring System (FoodBEAMS) was developed to enable researchers, school personnel, and other stakeholders to monitor adherence to current state and local school competitive food and beverage standards. FoodBEAMS includes a data collection component for inventorying competitive foods/beverages available for sale on school campuses and an analysis component which calculates adherence of inventoried items to competitive food standards.
*Store Assessment and Monitoring System (SAMS)*
SAMS is a tool that enables stakeholders to efficiently and effectively understand the small store food environment and identify areas for improvement. Accurate data on store environments and the factors within these stores that encourage or discourage healthy eating behaviors can serve to strengthen interventions and inform policy work. The SAMS tool is designed to capture the shopper’s exposure to healthy and unhealthy foods/beverages within a store by documenting the number of varieties sold for select food categories. In addition, SAMS captures placement of food/beverage types, varieties of hot/cold entrees available, and food and beverage marketing.
