Webinars: Health Implications of Food and Agriculture

This workshop covers very basic information that all nurses should know about the food system, the benefits of plant-based diets, the problem of food insecurity in the US, and how to bring healthier and more sustainable foods to our institutions (schools, hospitals, universities).
