    Kakul Joshi - Produce prescriptions for food insecure patients with hypertension in safety net clinics: a clinical-community linkage

    Little is known regarding the impact of produce prescriptions for hypertension (PRxHTN) within the context of hypertension visits at safety net clinics. This presentation will describe deployment of PRxHTN for patients with hypertension, and evaluate intervention effectiveness on patient’s utilization of farmers’ markets (FM) and dietary change related to fruit and vegetable (FV) consumption over 2-3 months. Lastly, I will discuss the potential next steps to evaluate the clinical-community linkage itself.

    Stephanie Pike Moore - Examining Food Retail Choice Contexts in Urban Food Deserts

    There is an abundance of research demonstrating the association between the retail food environment and numerous chronic health conditions but the understanding of the mechanisms which drive these associations remains limited. Our aim was to develop a method for evaluating variability in the food retail choice context by examining availability, pricing, quality, and advertising of healthy food items. We evaluated all food retail outlets within two urban ‘food desert’ neighborhoods. Retailers were scored (low, medium, high) based on the choices a resident individual would have available within ½ mile of their home where lower scores indicate lower availability, higher prices, and poor quality of healthy food options as well as greater amounts of unhealthy advertising. We found that the quality of the food retail environment within urban food deserts is more heterogeneous than the term ‘food desert’ implies and points to the need to better understand how choices are made within these contexts.
