This session will focus on the intersection of food and health – both food access and nutrition. Dr. Charlie Homer from the Harvard School of Public Health will be joined by two pediatricians, Dr. Deborah Frank and Dr. Shikha Anand. Topics to be discussed include food insecurity, food policy (as it relates to hunger), and strategies to increase access to health food (with a focus on prevention of childhood obesity). Two Community Action programs will be highlighted in relation to the topic to provide real application examples in addition to the subject matter expertise.
