Food is Medicine Forum – Bangor @ Cross Insurance Center
Jun 7 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Improving consumption of nutritious, healthy food is a crucial part of providing high quality, cost-effective health care.  In this conference, national and local experts will address the link between hunger and health, share the latest research on the high cost of hunger, the impact on seniors and children, and present examples of innovative work taking place in the US and in Maine.

Sponsored by EMHS and is an outgrowth of the system’s Partnerships to Improve Community Health award – a three-year cooperative agreement with US CDC to address determinants of health and prevent chronic disease.  EMHS is working with partners in Maine’s seven northern counties to improve access to healthy food, develop successful connections between healthcare providers and community organizations, and build a stronger prevention network.

Seating is limited.  Registration required.  Registration is free of charge
