Nutrition is integral to people flourishing and to the treatment and management of diseases that threaten us. As a provider community, we believe that one should not have to face the dual crises of illness and hunger. By making medically tailored nutrition and food central to our healthcare system we will produce better health outcomes, lower the cost of care and improve patient satisfaction.
