  • When Hospitals Deliver More Than Health Care
    April 19, 2018 2:00 pm
    Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging
    Join us for a conversation with Randy Oostra, President and CEO of ProMedica, for a discussion of how health systems translate understanding about the social determinants of health into action. ProMedica, a nonprofit health system serving 27 counties in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan, has a strategic focus on addressing the drivers of health for patients and communities by concentrating on the social determinants. ProMedica’s model emphasizes the importance of catalytic economic development and collaboration, in addition to adopting practices like screening patients for food, housing, and other basic needs.

  • Food Is Medicine: Research, Policy, & State of the Field
    October 13, 2017 3:00 pm
    Join this webinar to learn about the "food is medicine" approach and its historical roots, the state of the science, details of a new three-year study funded by California’s legislature, and how "food is medicine" has evolved into a national effort to make medically-tailored meals an essential health benefit. Participants will then discuss what funders can do to incorporate a “food is medicine” approach to their grantmaking, how programs and practices can be replicated and scaled up, and what can be done to support the movement locally and at the state level.

  • Visualizing The Farm Bill
    April 23, 2012 1:00 pm
    As the debate continues on the 2012 Farm Bill, the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has developed a Web app called the Farm Bill Budget Visualizer. Users can sort and filter Farm Bill expenditures since 2008 by categories such as obesity, food security, or sustainable agriculture – issues of great importance to those involved with both GIH and SAFSF.
