About This Event

Join CHA and American Academy of Pediatrics for "Promoting Food Access for Kids: How the Pediatric Community Can Effect Change," a three-part webinar series exploring ways that children’s hospitals and pediatric practices can address the hunger needs of children and families.

In the second webinar, "Promising Clinical Practices to Build Nutrition Security," learn about creative ways pediatric practices can address families’ food needs, such as on-site food pantries and food prescriptions. Kimberly G. Montez, MD, MPH, FAAP, will provide concrete clinical strategies that pediatricians can incorporate to help families access food resources.

Dr. Montez has worked with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on a national level to elevate the topic of food insecurity, and educate and encourage pediatricians to screen, intervene and advocate. Dr. Montez will discuss several AAP efforts to improve food insecurity screening, referral and resource delivery to families, including a partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

Learn more about part one and part three of the series.
