Our organizational partners in action
"A Rx for health: produce!"
The Northeast Ohio Neighborhood Health Services Inc. (NEON) clinic in the Hough neighborhood of Cleveland is piloting an innovative way to get fruits and vegetables into the hands of people living with hypertension. One challenge has been encouraging people living with hypertension to establish the daily practices that can keep them healthy, including what they eat. This program, funded in part by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, offers ongoing education for patients to self-manage their condition, as well as vouchers to be redeemed at local farmers markets for produce. Read the success story to learn more about how the NEON clinic established a farmers’ market at its clinic so that all patients can reap the benefits of locally grown food.
