Alisa Craig, Administrator for the Wellness Population and Health Management at Hurley Medical Center, does just that – she offers her clients choices. Hurley Medical Center has been taking care of patients for 110 years, but over the past year and a half, they have been working on Food FARMacy. The idea is that the patients who are food insecure could come and get medically tailored food. People who are food insecure suffer from the toxic stressors such as, not knowing where their next meal will come or having to make the choice of providing your Type 1 Diabetic with insulin or paying your electric bill – NO ONE should have to make these decisions. What do the majority of prescriptions advise you to do: take with FOOD!
