Register for our next quarterly webinar in Counter Tools’ Healthy POS series focused on healthy food and produce prescriptions – September 22nd at 2pm EST.
Public health advocates are increasingly focused on interventions that address social drivers of health. With produce prescriptions, healthcare providers address food security in the healthcare setting by connecting their patients with prescriptions for healthy fruits and vegetables. Reinvestment Partners manages several produce prescription programs across North Carolina and partners with Food Lion (a grocery chain) to provide access to fruits and vegetables. These programs are non-medical interventions that improve health, and they hold the potential to effect systems change in healthcare.
The webinar speakers will be Neal Curran, Director of Food Programs at Reinvestment Partners and Sam Hoeffler, Food Programs Manager at Reinvestment Partners. Learn more about their work at ReinvestmentPartners.org.
During this webinar, the speakers will be discussing what produce prescriptions are, how they can improve population health, and the role they can play in altering the way we provide healthcare in the United States.
The webinar is Tuesday, September 22nd from 2-3pm EST.
