Join Counter Tools for this next quarterly webinar in our "Healthy POS Webinar Series"!
Speakers: Neal Curran, Director of Food Programs at Reinvestment Partners; Sam Hoeffler, Food Programs Manager at Reinvestment Partners
Description: Public health advocates are increasingly focused on interventions that address social drivers of health. With produce prescriptions, healthcare providers address food security in the healthcare setting by connecting their patients with prescriptions for healthy fruits and vegetables. Reinvestment Partners manages several produce prescription programs across North Carolina and partners with Food Lion (a grocery chain) to provide access to fruits and vegetables. These programs are non-medical interventions that improve health, and they hold the potential to effect systems change in healthcare.
During this webinar, the speakers will be discussing what produce prescriptions are, how they can improve population health, and the role they can play in altering the way we provide healthcare in the United States.
