Too many stats

In the nutrition portion - too many statistics that are just uncalled for. For example percentage of seniors eligible for assistance that don’t use it. I mean - do I really need this information? FAILED the test with an 84 when the required score to pass is 85. Open book test but with 275 questions you only dig so much. Oh well—learned some new things.

Build a fulfilling career that helps meet the unique needs of older people.

As people age, their nutrition and lifestyle requirements change. We need to find new ways to adapt to older people’s needs to help prevent care dependency and declining physical capacity.
