On-Going Research Projects

In August 2021, our pilot client research program with Stanford University began to measure the impact of FEI interventions on clients’ finances, mental well-being, and overall physical health. Data like this will become more important as FEI continues to advocate for insurance coverage for medically-necessary foods to treat diet-treated illnesses.
