ProMedica Monograph Outlines Role of Collaboration in Ending Hunger
ProMedica is working together with community agencies, faith organizations, businesses, and elected leaders toward ending hunger, and sharing the successful strategies that are being employed in our region. To outline the need to work collaboratively to fight the causes of hunger, ProMedica is sharing our article, A Case to End U.S. Hunger Using Collaboration to Improve Population Health, with all who have a stake in achieving a healthier population. This monograph details why the healthcare industry must align with community and government efforts to make the fight against hunger a winnable battle – while improving overall population health. This document also outlines the strategies implemented by ProMedica that can serve as a model for healthcare leaders nationwide, and provides reasons why we must advocate for public policy changes that address this critical public health issue.
