Prescriptions for Healthy Living

“We use (EMR) technology to send electronic referrals to SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) outreach for families who are food insecure. The families are contacted within usually 48 hours and screened for their eligibility for assistance programs. They’re also given resources for the food shelves and feeding programs that are relevant to their geographic location.”
