Building Partnerships to Advance Nutrition Access & Health: Case Studies from Harvard’s CHLPI and California’s Medically Supportive Food & Nutrition Steering Committee

Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation
June 29, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Food insecurity is associated with negative health outcomes, and poor diet is the leading risk factor for death in the United States. These burdens disproportionately affect people from systemically underserved communities. Yet our healthcare system is often not equipped to respond to these and other social drivers of health. How can we build statewide access for medically supported food and nutrition and other health-related social services? Join SPUR, co-convenors of California’s Medically Supportive Food & Nutrition Steering Committee, and the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation (CHLPI) of Harvard Law School for the official release of their case study series illuminating the efforts of community partnerships to advance nutrition under California’s five-year Medicaid waiver, California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal. Hear study participants share valuable lessons that can advance health equity, improve access to care, and help speed adoption of similar policies state- and nation-wide.
