  • Presenter: Clancy Cash Harrison
  • Time: 12:00 - 1:00 pm

Yet, most public health educators and healthcare professionals promote the impractical consumption of produce for disease prevention and management.

For many patients, it isn’t about the broccoli but access to a steady supply of food first. Learn more.
