AAC 2017: Food as Medicine

Amanda Frankeny, Registered Dietitian and Community Nutritionist, The Pennsylvania Nutrition Education Network Maryann Smith, Nutrition Educator, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank Fish reduces the risk of depression! Run for dementia prevention! Fruits and vegetables shrink cancer risk. Let’s be real - some people can’t afford fish, running can’t happen on dangerous roads occupied by drugs and violence, and fresh produce can get costly. Health is an art that must take into account the whole person’s life - income, issues surrounding poverty, education, race, safety, transportation, housing, insurance, emotional-wellbeing, access to healthy food, and so much more. That’s why innovative partnerships take these factors into account as they look to develop better diabetes prevention strategies, increase the distribution of healthy foods for everyone, address food insecurity in healthcare settings, and much more. After this talk, you will understand the foods that can help you and your clients perform better at work and at home. You’ll see the importance of intentional partnerships as they build communities that disrupt cycle of hunger; creating places where healthy food is more appealing, affordable, and easily accessible for everyone. Pantries and other agencies play a huge role these solutions.

AAC 2017: Food as Medicine

Amanda Frankeny, Registered Dietitian and Community Nutritionist, The Pennsylvania Nutrition Education Network Maryann Smith, Nutrition Educator, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank Fish reduces the risk of depression! Run for dementia prevention! Fruits and vegetables shrink cancer risk. Let’s be real - some people can’t afford fish, running can’t happen on dangerous roads occupied by drugs and violence, and fresh produce can get costly. Health is an art that must take into account the whole person’s life - income, issues surrounding poverty, education, race, safety, transportation, housing, insurance, emotional-wellbeing, access to healthy food, and so much more. That’s why innovative partnerships take these factors into account as they look to develop better diabetes prevention strategies, increase the distribution of healthy foods for everyone, address food insecurity in healthcare settings, and much more. After this talk, you will understand the foods that can help you and your clients perform better at work and at home. You’ll see the importance of intentional partnerships as they build communities that disrupt cycle of hunger; creating places where healthy food is more appealing, affordable, and easily accessible for everyone. Pantries and other agencies play a huge role these solutions.
