A Nourishing Prescription: Food as Medicine to Promote Health and Health Equity

University of Pennsylvania’s Leonard Davis Institute
April 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A Virtual Conference with Sarah Downer, JD, Benjamin Perkins, MA, MDiv, and Hilary Seligman, MD, MAS, moderated by Christina Roberto, PhD.

Food has a clear impact on health and well-being, and the Food as Medicine movement embraces this concept by not only recommending healthy food but also providing it to those in need. From medically tailored meals to fruit and vegetable prescriptions and vouchers, community-based organizations, payers, and health care systems are addressing food insecurity and helping individuals prevent and manage chronic illness. Join our panel of experts to discuss Food as Medicine programs, their outcomes, and the opportunities and challenges in sustaining them.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Health Incentives & Behavioral Economics (CHIBE).
