Healthy Eating Rx: Improving Nutrition Through Health Care

This event has passed.

Diet-related diseases continue to be the leading cause of death in the U.S. Interventions that treat food as a form of treatment and provide comprehensive nutritional education have the potential to improve health outcomes and reduce substantial expenses associated with health care.

Food is Medicine integrates food-based programs and interventions at multiple levels of health care such as produce prescriptions, medically tailored groceries, and medically tailored meals.

Join the discussion and learn more about policies that address increasing nutrition education and access to Food is Medicine interventions for those with diet-related diseases.
