Feeding Change: Food is Medicine


2020 Future of Health Summit

Feeding Change: Food is Medicine



December 9 at 9 am PT/12 pm ET


The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted another long-simmering pandemic—diet-related chronic disease. With more than half of the US adult population experiencing chronic disease in some form, the prevention and treatment of disease through nutrition is a topic long overdue for discussion. Panelists will review programs that appear to be working. They will propose initiatives that could be scaled to benefit a wider swath of consumers. Of high interest, they will identify the players who, in their opinion, hold the key to unlocking the power of food as medicine.
