Forum Interprofessional Education Collaborative
Join us for a presentation by the Good Shepherd Food Bank's Community Health and Hunger Program, which addresses the issue of nutrition and health in low-income families by building partnerships between the Food Bank and health care organizations so they may better identify and remove barriers for Mainers who lack access to adequate nutrition. To improve the health of food insecure Mainers, the program is promoting the Hunger Vital Signs™ tool and intervention strategies so that healthcare providers may address food insecurity with patients during office visits.
To learn more about how the Food Bank is working with healthcare organizations to ensure all Mainers have access to nutritious food, please visit: https://www.gsfb.org/programs/community-health-hunger/
Light lunch will be served on Portland Campus.
This event will be Livestreamed to Biddeford Campus in the new space by the Ripich Commons cafeteria (Light snacks will be available).
