About this event:
Join the AZAND Professional Development Webinar Series with a focus on Health Equity at our Lunch and Learn on December 9th from 12pm-1pm via zoom. Sandra Chmelnik BS RDN CDCES from Valleywise will discuss the Food Pharmacy project and it’s positive effects on diabetic patients. A food desert is a term that has been used for decades, where healthy food choices are hard to find. But the lack of access to healthy food reflects a larger problem: food insecurity. Eliminating food insecurity would go a long way reducing the burden of diabetes, but is not an easy task. The Food Pharmacy model can be a feasible solution, by creating a bridge between the healthcare and food systems, reaching out to vulnerable individuals and removing barriers.
