ChristianaCare’s Michelle Axe Presents the Delaware Food Farmacy

2022-02-24 , Lutheran Community Services
As Michelle explains, “Many low-income, food-insecure individuals diagnosed with chronic diseases like hypertension, congestive heart failure and diabetes experience worse health outcomes often as a result of the ‘treat or eat’ dilemma.” That is, patients find themselves choosing between spending money to address chronic health conditions (with medication, appointment co-pays, and other costs) or paying for food, housing, and utilities. The DFF helps patients manage their health by providing food as medicine.
