The Food as Medicine Summit will bring together regional stakeholders around the critical connections between nutrition, food security, and chronic diseases, the services and interventions that recognize and address these links, and the opportunities for economic development through local procurement.

There will also be a plenary panel on the local food as medicine landscape, networking lunch, afternoon workshops, and concluding session to identify next steps.
