Food is Medicine

Let's face it, we spend a lot on treating illness in healthcare, but perhaps prevention is where more effort and investment should be going.

Poor diet is the leading cause of mortality in the United States, causing more than half a million deaths per year. What's more shocking, only 10 dietary factors are estimated to cause nearly 1,000 deaths every day from heart disease, stroke and diabetes alone.

As more people are impacted by poor diet choices, there is increasing need to use food and nutrition interventions and policy to improve health. In this POV, we break down Food Is Medicine (FIM) programs, how healthcare providers are jumping in and adopting them, technological advancements in the FIM space, and how to make FIM a reality for your consumers.
