Linking Patients to WIC and Other Food Safety Net Programs: Perspectives from Health Care

CHLPI
February 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Zoom

Momentum to integrate food and nutrition insecurity interventions into health care is poised to continue in 2024, with more providers screening for health-related social needs and connecting patients to produce vouchers, medically-tailored meals, and other Food is Medicine interventions.

Health care systems are also increasingly experimenting with new ways to engage patients about government benefit programs such as WIC and SNAP, leveraging these programs as part of a Food is Medicine framework, and embracing the role that health care can play in boosting participation among eligible individuals.

On February 26, join the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation in conversation with three health care systems driving increased coordination of health care, referrals, and food safety net programs:

  • Healthcare Network, a Federally Qualified Health Center in Florida and recipient of a 2023 WIC Community Innovation and Outreach Project (WIC CIAO) grant
  • Kaiser Permanente, a leading health care provider and not-for-profit health plan deploying an innovative texting-based outreach campaign and other efforts to help people apply for government programs.
  • Community Care Cooperative, a Federally Qualified Health Center-led Accountable Care Organization in Massachusetts focused on advancing integrated and coordinated community-based care for Medicaid beneficiaries.

Panelists will highlight program experiences, research efforts, lessons learned and strategies.
