NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — AdhereHealth, a healthcare technology leader in medication adherence insights and health outcomes, today announced that Chief Adherence Officer, Cyndi Alexander, will take part in a live panel discussion being held in conjunction with the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health.
The virtual satellite event, “Crossroads of Health & Hunger: A National Ecosystem,” is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Sept. 27th, at 11:00 am ET. Sponsored by US Hunger, the panel will bring together leaders from different sectors to discuss how they can collaborate to address the root causes of hunger.

Healthy food is medicine.”
