"Food Is Medicine" is more than just a slogan.

Primary Care Malnutrition Collaborative:

A Community of Practice 

The CMTF Primary Care Working Group is creating a unique opportunity for dietitians working in primary care and the community to share common interests, concerns, challenges, resources and learnings. Through regular informal mentoring sessions, dietitians will brainstorm on how to adopt best practices related to screening, assessing, treating and preventing malnutrition in their adult patients.
