Hospital food has a pretty awful reputation, and the Physicians for Social Responsibility are working on new procurement opportunities that include small farmers and focus on anti-biotic free meat. Tune in to this week’s episode of What Doesn’t Kill You as Katy Keiffer is joined by Robert Gould, a member of Physicians for Social Responsibility and Professor and Vice Chair of Radiology for Technology and Capital Projects at the University of California, San Francisco. Find out why it’s so difficult to change the culture of eating within hospitals, and why contract purchasing companies need to hear feedback from institutions regarding food. Do patients who eat better food have better health outcomes? Tune in to learn what the Physicians for Social Responsibility are doing for the environment outside of the agricultural scope. Hear about their projects that aim to curb chemical waste, and find out where Dr. Gould stands on subtherapeutic antibiotic applications. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Thanks to Idgy Dean for today’s break music.
