South Central NY Fruit & Vegetable Prescription Program
Health Care Providers
The Health Care Providers who prescribe the Fruit and Vegetable Rx program serve as the main link between program participants and the program itself. Their dedication to their patients’ health and well being is the backbone of the success of our program.
