By incorporating a healthy beverages program into a broader sustainable food policy, health care facilities can play an important role in promoting food choices that are beneficial for the health of their communities and the environment.
The Healthy Food in Health Care program of Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) promotes the procurement and selling of healthy beverage options through its Healthy Beverages initiative. This webinar will be an introduction to the Healthy Beverages initiative, the science behind it, and how hospitals are participating in Healthy Beverages. Participants will also learn about tools and resources available to them to implement a Healthy Beverages program, and track their progress through the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI).
Ted Schettler MD, MPH, and Science Director of the Science and Environmental Health Network, will first describe the environmental and public health science behind the Healthy Beverages initiative. James Corbett, MDiv, JD, and the System Vice President of Community Health and Ethics at Steward Health Care System (formerly Caritas Christi) in Massachusetts will then present how the Steward Health Care system is implementing a Healthy Beverages program. Stacia Clinton, RD, LDN, and Healthy Food in Health Care Program Coordinator will moderate.
Participants will learn about:
The environmental and health impacts of unhealthy beverage consumption
Why the issue of healthy beverages is one that hospitals should be concerned about
How hospitals are already implementing healthy beverage policies
How HCWH’s Healthy Beverages tools and resources can help health care facilities incorporate healthy beverages into their facilities
How hospitals can track their progress in implementing healthy beverage policies through the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI).
