Toward Better Integration of Health and Human Services: Linkages between Food Insecurity, SNAP and Health Care
Food assistance programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), play an important role in alleviating food insecurity. At the same time, these programs can also help improve health outcomes, thereby decreasing the cost of health care.
Please join IMPAQ International on April 9th from 2-3pm Eastern to learn how SNAP’s effect on health indicates a need to engage health partners around social determinants, promote a more integrated health & human services delivery system, and support SNAP as a national strategy to counter rising health care costs. Our presenters will share recent research that highlight the linkages between food insecurity, SNAP participation, and health care utilization and costs.
