Using Food As Medicine to Connect Clinic, Trayline and the Cafeteria Space

Food As Medicine embraces food as the foundation of healing. In hospital and institutional settings, food frequently takes a backseat to medical procedures, pharmaceutical intervention and rehabilitation. Foodservice is in the basement and nutrition practitioners bear the brunt of food complaints. This session is designed to reverse that paradigm and put food, foodservice and nutrition expertise back in the driver’s seat. Learn how to add deep meaning to bedside nutrition counseling and drive new business to the outpatient setting. Create a hospital-wide food as medicine nutrition brand that is embraced by every clinic. Apply the same brand approach to patient meal selections and tray delivery. Reflect the same brand approach in the employee and visitor cafeteria setting.  This presentation includes extensive visual examples and audience interaction to make the information actionable and meaningful.
