“Using a Health Equity Framework to Improve Access to Healthy Food”

The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods will host a seminar, “Using a Health Equity Framework to Improve Access to Healthy Food,” Wednesday, March 11, from noon to 1:15 p.m. in the ground floor conference room of the BioEnterprise building.

The seminar will be presented by Morgan Taggart, director of Healthy Food Access Initiatives at PRCHN, and members of the Food Access Raises Everyone team. FARE is an initiative developed by The Food Trust (TFT) in 2014 to increase the capacity and coordination of local, Cleveland-based stakeholders and strengthen their current efforts to increase food access and improve health. This presentation will share an overview of FARE’s approach to food access work in Cleveland and how FARE’s staff and advisors assessed their work using a health equity lens and developed a new community-based participatory framework to guide their decision making and work moving forward.

This seminar series is open to the public and a light lunch will be served. Contact Madeline Castele at mcc92@case.eduor more information.
