Food Insecurity – Rural Health Voice Podcast

On the latest episode of the Rural Health Voice Podcast, Dr. Tori Makal from University of Virginia’s College at Wise and Dr. Wendy Welch from the SWVA Graduate Medical Education Consortium discuss food insecurity and the Inman Village Foodways Partnership Project –  a project to improve health workers’ awareness of community nutrition and health care access problems. Medical residents and other students in medical fields (therapists, nurses, and social workers especially) prepare and serve meals at Inman Village in Wise County each month and offer a program (workshop and lecture formats) on health and nutrition. Villagers also have the opportunity to discuss health and wellbeing issues with residents.
