2nd Annual

Food As Medicine Symposium,

A Bridge To Health

Thank You for Joining Us!

The 2nd Annual BNMC Food As Medicine Symposium took place on October 13, 2022, at the University of Buffalo Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences. A networking event and vendor fair followed a full-day program featuring national and local experts discussing the latest Food as Medicine policies, programs, and research. The conference strengthened the bridge between healthcare institutions and community environments.

In presenting Food As Medicine 2022, we aimed to meet the following objectives:

  • Provide education on the spectrum of Food As Medicine, for healthcare clinicians, students, community health practitioners, and the general public.    
  • Highlight best practices in the delivery of nutrition education, medically tailored meals, food pharmacy, and health and well-being programs.  
  • Bring attention to the significance of research in measuring how food contributes as a social determinant of health. Give practitioners a call to action on how to support these projects to better inform decision-makers to increase access to food and nutrition services for underserved populations.  
  • Facilitate partnership, collaboration, and alignment among local, regional, state, and national organizations in the Food as Medicine sphere.
