Supported in part by the Leo and Peggy Pierce Family Foundation

This one-day interactive symposium, held at West Chester University, will focus on issues and opportunities related to food access for children and families in schools and in their communities.  Join us in our attempt to  uncover how various sectors—businesses, health care, and government—intersect on these important issues.

This symposium—ideal for professionals and students in  nursing, public health, health administration, social work, physical and occupational therapy, nutrition, and physician assistant programs—includes a keynote speaker panel, breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and a  healthy breakfast and lunch.

This is the third symposium following the two offered in 2015 and 2017 held at Cabrini University.
