FOOD LABELING INTERVENTION INCREASES SALES OF HEALTHY FOODS
The labeling and in-store promotion of both healthy foods and healthier low-sodium, low-fat, or lower-sugar-content food choices can increase sales of promoted food items, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins University. The findings suggest an economically feasible model for promoting healthier food purchases and are published on the website of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
“Many people, particularly those who live in low-income neighborhoods, have limited access to healthy foods. We wanted to develop an intervention that could help make healthy choices easier for consumers,” said Pamela Surkan, lead author of the study and assistant professor in the Department of International Health at the university’s Bloomberg School of Public Health.
The Eat Right-Live Well campaign was developed and studied by a collaboration of researchers from the Bloomberg School, the university’s Carey Business School, and the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future.

Exploring open innovation with a patient focus in drug discovery: an evolving paradigm of patient engagement
It is suggested in this article that patient engagement should occur further upstream during the drug discovery stage. ‘Lead patients’, namely those patients who are proactive with respect to their health, possess knowledge of their disease and resulting symptoms. They are also well informed about the conventional as well as non-conventional treatments for disease management; and so can provide a nuanced perspective to drug design.
