Addressing Food Insecurity in Adolescent Patients
From Rachel Brauer
This webinar took place on Thursday, December 19, 2019.
Food insecurity affects our adolescent patients, but may often go unnoticed in health care settings. How can providers and health care professionals better understand the unique challenges faced by adolescents and examine the role we play in helping connect patients to food and community nutrition resources? Join the Adolescent Health Initiative, the Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools, Food Gatherers, for an interactive webinar, Addressing Food Insecurity with Adolescent Patients. This engaging professional development opportunity will help attendees better understand food insecurity, recognize how food is a social determinant of health, and increase comfort level with routine screening for food insecurity with adolescent patients.
