PDFFood Insecurity & Hunger in the U.S.: New Research newsletter

As the concept of food as medicine gains popularity, many have asked: How can anti-hunger organizations and the medical profession coordinate to improve the nutrition and health outcomes of low-income children, seniors, and families?

This webinar will feature presentations on the benefits of screening for food insecurity in health settings, as well as lessons learned on how to best connect patients to nutrition assistance resources. Presentations will feature medical professionals and anti-hunger advocates who are currently partnering to identify patients struggling with food insecurity, and then connect them to the nutrition assistance they need.

By participating in this webinar, you will learn why partnerships between health care providers and anti-hunger organizations are so promising and important, how patients can be systematically connected to nutrition assistance, and what has made this referral process work well in different communities around the nation.
