Equity, Engagement & Nutrition: Innovations Empowering the Underserved
Leaders from Humana, SCAN and NourishedRx discuss the link between food, nutrition security and health and the idea that food and nutrition programs can improve health. Many Americans lack access to nutritious food due to food insecurity, contributing to high rates of chronic disease, poor health outcomes and health disparities, especially among underserved communities.
Our expert panel will share solutions and strategies health plans can adopt to improve health equity, reduce healthcare costs and alleviate the adverse impact of limited access to healthy food among your most vulnerable populations.
