Food for All: Carolina Public Health Magazine recently profiled Dr. Alice Ammerman and her work in improving access to healthy food
HPDP director Alice Ammerman, DrPH, co-chairs the "Food for All: Local and Global Perspectives" 2015-2017 UNC academic theme which was recently featured in the Carolina Public Health Magazine. The goal of the theme is to bring fresh community-grown produce to local communities across the state of North Carolina. Two main themes stem from the project that intertwine with Ammerman's interests: providing healthy produce access to everyone including underserved communities and increasing economic opportunities for local farmers and distributors.
