Last year, UNICEF treated more than 4 million children for severe acute malnutrition — and Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) made this lifesaving work possible. Our guest this week, Dr. Patricia Wolff, founded the St. Louis- and Haiti-based Meds & Food for Kids, which is one of UNICEF's partners that produces this nutritious peanut paste. She joins us to share why she found her calling in Haiti, how RUTF is made, and how we can take the fight against malnutrition even further.
