Join All In: Data for Community Health for the next webinar in our project showcase series highlighting insights and lessons from local collaborations sharing data across sectors to improve community health.

The webinar will feature two projects that are creating new linkages between health systems and food systems to better serve their communities. While promoting individual health is a primary aim, these projects are demonstrating how focusing on food security can reap benefits for the healthcare sector and the community as a whole. By forming community partnerships and data systems linking social service providers, food banks, hospitals/health systems, and other sectors, these projects are fostering environments that improve food access and ultimately lead to better health outcomes and lower costs.

Featured projects:

  • Food for Health: DASH grantees Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation, the Parkland Health and Hospital System, and the North Texas Food Bank and its partner agencies are leveraging the Dallas Information Exchange Portal to improve the diet and nutrition of patients who experience food insecurity and have been diagnosed with chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes.
  • Improving Health Through a Sustainable Food System: BUILD 1.0 grantees Houston Food Bank and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center worked with North Pasadena’s Sustainable Food System project to launch new programs like food scholarships and the food prescription program (“FRx”) to help community members access food and make healthy choices.
