From Produce Prescriptions to Medically Tailored Meals & Personalized Nutrition: Integrating Nutrition into the Healthcare System

Food is a central force of life – giving us the fuel we need to go about our days, but unfortunately it is also the number one cause of poor health in America, with an estimated 700,000 deaths annually related to what we eat. Food doesn’t have to be the enemy, though. So how can we boost access and affordability to healthy food through innovative public-private partnerships that bring together retailers, manufacturers, health care providers, insurers and national leaders?
