Colleen Heflin, professor of public administration and international affairs, spoke with MD Magazine about her recently published study "SNAP benefits and childhood asthma." "There is evidence that participants in SNAP exhaust their benefits early in the month and often experience reduced food consumption at the end of the month," Heflin told MD Magazine. "I wanted to see if there were any observable health consequences to these monthly fluctuations in food consumption." 12/17/18
