Food is Medicine
Presenters: David Waters and Katie Garfield, JD
For years, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School (CHLPI) has worked with food and nutrition services providers to make the case that Food is Medicine and should therefore be an important part of our nation’s healthcare systems.
In this session, the founding member of the national Food is Medicine Coalition, David Waters, and the Staff Attorney at CHLPI, Katie Garfield, will outline opportunities to achieve this goal by working with healthcare payers, providers, and policy leaders to establish reimbursement for medically tailored food in public and private insurance programs.
