Spoke in a panel discussion on hunger and health at the Come to the Table summit in Washington, DC.

Hunger’s Effect Across the Age Spectrum

On Feb. 27, 2014, ProMedica and the Alliance to End Hunger are holding Come to the Table, a half-day summit in Washington, D.C., to encourage other healthcare organizations to also address hunger as a health issue and federal legislators to protect food-related programs and policies. We want to make hunger as a health issue a national priority among healthcare providers and those who oversee funding for the means to help end hunger.
