National Health Center Week: Agriculture Worker Health Day

Do you ever wonder how the food on your table gets there? Agricultural workers across the country work and live in exhausting conditions to provide for our collective well-being. On Tuesday August 8, as part of National Health Center Week, we honor them and all those who provide comprehensive healthcare for them. LifeLong partners with local farming programs – including Urban Tilth in Richmond and Dig Deep Farms in San Leandro — to ensure access to nutritious food for our patients through the veggie giveaway program and nutrition and cooking classes. In addition, LifeLong’s family medicine residents visit an urban farm and are trained in the concept of food as medicine.
