Community Collaboration: The Secret to Winning the War Against Hunger
May 8 @ 12:00 pm
42 million Americans cannot afford to buy fruits and vegetables. Yet, most public health educators and healthcare professionals promote the impractical consumption of produce for disease prevention and management. Clancy will discuss why promoting broccoli and other vegetables to prevent diabetes does not work for a patient who doesn’t know where his next meal is coming from and strategies that improve patient’s health status. For many patients, it isn’t about the broccoli but access to a steady supply of food first.
Clancy will demonstrate why food access is a top priority and how dignifying food assistance will win the war on hunger. She will provide practical solutions to fight hunger and identify how effective collaboration with community partners improve health outcomes.
- Identify counseling resources to build rapport with food insecure clients and improve patient compliance.
- Explain strategies to become a leader in hunger relief efforts and bridge community resources to improve health outcomes and funding.
- Recognize preceptor opportunities to incorporate dietetic interns into the fight against hunger and reduce organizational workload.
