Clinical Practice: Food Matters
Clinical Education and Advocacy Program
Food matters because what we eat profoundly impacts the health of individuals, communities, and the environment. Among the members of the U.S. population, exposure to energy-dense, nutritionally-depleted, chemical-laden, and environmentally-destructive food is ubiquitous. Obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, childhood cancer and other chronic diseases are the costly consequences of these exposures, both in terms of human well-being and healthcare expenditures. A complex industrialized food system underlies this state of nutritional affairs.
In addition to curriculum development and trainings, PRHE has contributed several papers and patient brochures to the Food Matters program.
- Pesticides Matter: A Primer for Reproductive Health Physicians
- Reproductive Health And The Industrialized Food System: A Point Of Intervention For Health Policy
- Pesticides Matter: Steps to Reduce Exposure and Protect Your Health
- What to Eat: A Guide to Your Daily Food Choices
