Interventions to Decrease Food Insecurity

Reserve Your Spot

Date: Monday, October 28, 2019

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Join America’s Essential Hospitals and the Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network (SIREN) to learn how health systems nationwide are exploring ways to help meet patients’ food insecurity needs. Emilia De Marchis, MD, from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Family and Community Medicine, will present the results of a systematic review of health care–based food insecurity interventions. This research was sponsored by SIREN at UCSF.

You’ll also hear firsthand an essential hospital’s experience delivering a food insecurity intervention. Larry Altier will share how Lee Health, in Fort Myers, Fla., developed and evaluated Flavor Harvest @ Home, a program designed to help meet the nutrition needs of patients living in food deserts.
