PRCHN Seminar: Nourishing Beginnings

Nourishing Beginnings is a countywide program that links Medicaid-eligible pregnant individuals with community health workers who assess and address the social needs of their clients. For those eligible, the program tests two different models of food access (food delivery and financial assistance with personalized navigation). This project aims to support pregnant people by connecting them to fresh, nutritious foods during pregnancy and the postpartum period.

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community can learn more about Nourishing Beginnings during a Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRCHN) seminar Wednesday, Feb. 8, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

This presentation will highlight the implementation and evaluation of this community-academic partnership to address food insecurity and improve maternal health and birth outcomes in Medicaid-eligible pregnant individuals.
