- Title: Obesity Prevention from the Lens of the Food Insecure
- Presenters: Amanda Dolan, MS, RDN, LDN, Registered Dietitian from Amanda D. Nutrition and Amanda Frankeny, RDN, LDN, Community Nutritionist at the Pennsylvania Nutrition Education Network
- Webinar Objectives:
- Describe how poverty, environmental injustice, prolonged hunger, other social determinants impact people’s health.
- Provide national and local examples of approaches to reduce these health disparities.
- Outline resources nutrition educators can use to strengthen their policy, system and environmental changes for the food insecure populations.
- Webinar Description: The food-as-medicine prescription has been around for decades. But, it’s finally making inroads as medical institutions, food pantries, and other organizations make food a formal part of care. As they pave the way, their food and health advice must take into account the whole person’s life - income, issues surrounding poverty, education, race, safety, culture, transportation, housing, insurance, emotional well-being, access to healthy food, and so much more. Innovative partnerships take these factors into account as they look to develop better obesity prevention strategies, increase the distribution of healthy foods for everyone, address food insecurity in healthcare settings, and more. Come explore the importance of intentional partnerships as they build communities that disrupt cycle of hunger. See how they create places where healthy food is more appealing, affordable, and easily accessible for everyone. Even better, food pantries and other community agencies play a huge role these solutions.
