Extensive evidence shows that micronutrient status affects biological mechanisms underlying key areas of population health research. Micronutrient malnutrition is closely linked to stressful life events, environment, migration, maternal and child health, and health disparities, and has lasting effects on health across the life course, but it is often left out of research in these areas. This workshop will the explain the relevance of micronutrient status to all of these topics, discuss some existing datasets that include variables informative about the effects of micronutrient malnutrition, and give a brief overview of biomarker methods for micronutrient status assessment.
