About This Event

Join CHA and the 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 third webinar, "Telling the Story: How Pediatricians and Children’s Hospitals are Advocating for Nutrition Security,” hear about strategies taking place on the state and local level to institute policy changes to help build towards nutrition security. Examples of this work including increasing patient enrollment in programs such as SNAP and WIC, supporting policies to address child poverty and seeking opportunities for pediatricians to testify in favor of policies that expand access to healthy and nutritious food.

Watch part one and part two of the series.
