When: June 28 – 29
Where: Boston, Massachusetts
As places of healing, hospitals have a natural incentive to provide food that’s healthy for people and the environment in which we live. By understanding the link between food production and food related disease, health care practitioners can begin to educate their patients, model appropriate food purchasing and help transition the way in which our food is grown and distributed to one that is protective of human health and the environment.
This one and half day conference is designed to help participants incorporate sustainable and nutritious food purchasing at their facilities, and learn cost effective strategies that emphasize health concerns that meet the unique needs of healthcare and facilitate the development of healthy communities. Presentations will be geared towards healthcare providers, dieticians, food service directors and food procurement and distribution professionals.
