About This Event
Children's hospitals across the country are working to address issues of hunger and food security in their communities. This work shows up in a variety of ways, both inside the hospital walls and out in the community.
During this webinar, attendees will learn about two approaches children's hospitals are taking. One of these approaches is geared towards patients who screen positive for food insecurity in the emergency department and the other to support and fund community-based initiatives.
- Understand a unique implementation and integration approach for social needs screening in a hospital-based setting.
- Learn how a hospital (system) can be engaged in food security work at every level of the socio-ecological model (individual, family, community and systems interventions).
- Discuss the value of cross-sector relationships and partnerships to better support family and community needs.
