The American Hospital Association invites you to attend a webinar that is an extension of an upcoming guide "Determinants of Health Series: Food Insecurity and the Role of Hospitals"; featuring innovative practices Arkansas Children's Hospital and ProMedica have implemented to identify and reduce the prevalence of food insecurity in the communities they serve. Because only 20 percent of health can be attributed to medical care, hospitals are recognizing the effects socio-economic factors have on health. Food insecurity is a determinant of health that is affecting more than 15.8 million households in America. It is linked to chronic conditions like obesity and diabetes and can delay child development. Many other physical, behavioral, clinical and socio-economic factors that determine the health and well-being of an individual are associated with food insecurity, making it a significant health care issue that needs to be embraced in any hospital's population health strategy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand food insecurity
  • Learn how to screen for food insecurity and other determinants of health
  • Understand the importance of partnership with organizations in the food industry
  • Outline various practices to address food insecurity, such as food pharmacies and food pantries
  • Barbara Petee, Chief Advocacy and Government Relations Officer, ProMedica
  • Stephanie Cihon, Manager, Community Relations, Advocacy and Grants, ProMedica
  • Anna Strong, Executive Director of Child Advocacy and Public Health, Arkansas Children's Hospital
  • Scott Allen, Director of Community Outreach, Arkansas Children's Hospital
