 An insightful conversation about the intersection of programming and policy development with a focus on nutrition access and infant and maternal health.

Deidre GrimDr. Deidre Grim of Grim Consulting Group joins us from a city that mirrors Wilmington. Savannah, Georgia is a port city that faces similar challenges with nutrition access and infant and maternal health. In this session, we will explore how Dr. Grim navigated both challenges in her work with nonprofits, and her experiences with First Food Friendly Communities.

She has learned that in order to make sustainable and equitable change, one must co-develop programming that will lead to lasting policy change. Dr. Grim lives by the words of Vice President Kamala Harris teaches, “If you are fortunate to have an opportunity, it is your duty to make sure other people have those opportunities as well.”
