Join us at the 2016 Fall Open Forum in Summit, WI!

At the Healthy Food for All Families: The Role of Primary Care in Food Security, we will explore issues and initiatives aimed at ensuring that Wisconsin’s children and families have access to enough healthy, safe food. Primary care providers play a critical role in screening for food insecurity, but need to direct families to assistance, not just identify the problem. Leading an active, healthy life can be difficult depending on a family’s social determinants of health.

Attendees will explore:

  • Definitions of common terms used by programs, statutes and professionals dealing with nutrition and physical activity
  • Households with the highest risk of food insecurity
  • Recommendations for screening in the primary care setting
  • Federal and state efforts and resources
  • Details on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act and other statutes
  • How to identify resources for families in your local community
