About this Conference:
Research links food insecurity, one of the many social determinants of health, to poor health outcome, including the incidence of diabetes and poor diabetes management. “What About Food?” is designed from evidence-based materials and is grounded in theory. The program seeks to raise awareness about food insecurity in Northeast Tennessee and food insecurity screening in the clinical setting through a one-time workshop among healthcare students and licensed providers. The program will employ a variety of learning strategies such as: multimedia presentations, small and large group discussions, role play and demonstration, and case study analysis. The program will serve as a professional development opportunity and an educational experience.
