Produce Prescription Programs have emerged as a promising strategy to improve health, reduce food insecurity, and manage long-term health care costs. These Programs enable health care providers to connect patients living with or at risk for diet-related health conditions to the fruits and vegetables they need to heal and thrive. Despite mounting evidence that Produce Prescription Programs can improve health outcomes by promoting affordable access to healthy foods, availability of these services remains limited in many areas of the country.
This month, with support from The Rockefeller Foundation, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School (CHLPI) will release a new report, analyzing current barriers and policy opportunities for expanding access to Produce Prescription Programs across the United States. The Mainstreaming Produce Prescriptions webinar will provide an overview of key findings and insights from experts in the produce prescription field.
