Health Care Teams
Clinically Integrated Recipe4Health Model
At clinically integrated sites, including Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Native American Health Center, LifeLong Medical Center, Alameda Health System-Hayward Wellness, and Bay Area Community Health, the Alameda County Recipe4Health initiative uses three ingredients to improve the health of patients and the community: a Food Farmacy, Group and Individual Health Coaching, and Food as Medicine training for health center staff.
A Toolkit to Set Up Food as Medicine
Recipe4Health developed “Rooting Food as Medicine in Healthcare” for primary care clinics and other healthcare settings that want to incorporate “food as medicine” initiatives into their practice and workflow. Because every health center has a different culture it includes suggested templates and timelines that can be adapted for specific needs.
