Webinar Series 2020-2021

AZAND Professional Development Webinar Series, Valleywise Food Pharmacy

By AZ Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics


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, RDN, CDCES from Valleywise will discuss the Food Pharmacy project and its 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. Register here!
