This hybrid event will also be available virtually through the Whova platform.

In presenting Food As Medicine 2022, we aim 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.
