Association Between Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Participation and Cost-Related Medication Nonadherence Among Older Adults With Diabetes
Addressing food insecurity as a social determinant of health increases understanding of related factors, such as health care utilization, and offers opportunities to identify strategies for disease self-management.
