Description

Join the Food and Health Network of South Central New York, Leatherstocking Collaborative Health Partners and Cooperstown Farmers' Market on Thursday, August 31st for a half day workshop with Wholesome Wave. We'll explore the impacts of Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Programs and local opportunies to improve health through access to food. Fruit & Vegetable Prescription programs enable innovative partnerships between healthcare, retail and agriculture, and community-based organizations to increase access to healthy, fresh, and affordable fruits and vegetables. Through these programs, patients are empowered to make healthy food choices and prevent/manage diet-related health conditions, retailers and local farms receive direct economic benefits, and patient-provider relationships are deepened. The forum will also include a discussion on opportunities for implementing a program in the region.

There will be light refreshments during registration and lunch will be provided.
