Early Bird Registration extended to March 31st!

Dear Community,

The idea of food as medicine makes sense to many of us working in health care. More and more, nutrition is being centered in health professional training and patient care. However, people across many communities who would like to eat well just can’t access healthy food – or even enough food. Join us in creating an equitable and inclusive food as medicine movement. 

With more than 50 speakers, the Food as Medicine Global Conference provides a culturally inclusive curriculum and collaborative engagement experience featuring inspiring leaders working in the intersections of food, health, community, social justice, and planetary wellbeing. We are grateful for this impressive group of presenters from Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Malawi, Mexico, New Zealand, and around the U.S.

The conference offers attendees an opportunity to learn practical skills and gain a deeper understanding of what food as medicine means from a health equity perspective to develop more comprehensive approaches to nutritional therapy, health promotion, and illness prevention. In addition, these approaches will benefit the advancement of care models committed to food equity, cultural humility, and health justice.

Join us! We offer a sliding scale membership and a discounted Early Bird conference registration (available through March 31st). In addition, we welcome conference sponsorships to accommodate a variety of budgets.

We look forward to your involvement!
