Dr. Sara N Bleich

“But one of my main messages for you all is that these are problems that are almost entirely preventable.” “I would just really think about how you can in your day to day life or in your professional life, how you can facilitate those linkages and raise awareness about the importance of the federal nutrition assistance program.”

We’ll explore how access to healthy food options plays a pivotal role in disease prevention and consider the policy changes necessary to combat food insecurity.
