Penn LDI Virtual Seminar: A Nourishing Prescription: Food as Medicine to Promote Health and Health Equity

April 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A Virtual Conversation with Sarah Downer, JD, Benjamin Perkins, MA, MDiv, and Hilary Seligman MD, MAS, moderated by Christina Roberto, PhD
Event Details:
Food has a clear impact on health and well-being, and the Food as Medicine movement embraces this concept by not only recommending healthy food but also providing it to those in need. From medically tailored meals to fruit and vegetable prescriptions and vouchers, community-based organizations, payers, and health care systems are addressing food insecurity and helping individuals prevent and manage chronic illness. Join our panel of experts to discuss Food as Medicine programs, their outcomes, and the opportunities and challenges in sustaining them. Free & open to the public.
