The Health and Hunger Summit- Session Two
September 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Health and Hunger from the Health Care Provider’s Perspective
Hunger is growing. According to research published in The Journal of Pediatrics, approximately one-half of families receiving routine pediatric care at a community health center during the pandemic reported food insecurity.
Still, adopting screening and referral practices in the primary care setting is challenging. With so many social determinants to address, do providers have time to screen? Does stigma play a role in apprehension to screen? Are there even community resources for providers to refer to?
Join us for a conversation with primary care providers to discuss this important topic. This session is scheduled on September 29 from 10am to 11:30am.
