About the Webinar

Food insecurity is increasingly recognized as a critical determinant of health. Diet-related diseases are the leading causes of death in the United States. Clinical systems have expressed considerable interest in implementing “food is medicine” programs and interventions to address both food insecurity and diet-related disease. This webinar will explore what food is medicine means in the clinical setting, current program models, the state of the science demonstrating their impact, and selected research gaps.
