    9:30 AM-10:30 AM

    Online

    • Everyone

    This webinar, presented by The Center for Public Health Practice, will provide a high-level overview of upcoming policy debates in Washington over the future of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly “food stamps”). Serving over 44 million low-income Americans in 2016, SNAP is the backbone of America’s nutritional safety net and a critical tool to improve population health. The webinar will briefly cover these hot policy topics: - SNAP Basics (How the program works, who it helps, and what it costs) - Work Requirements and Time Limits - Nutrition Incentives and Food Choice The public health community can play a critical role in protecting SNAP from structural changes or other cuts that would undermine its ability to respond to changing need. The webinar will provide resources for public health advocates interested in getting more involved. Rachel Cahill, MPA, a nationally recognized expert in public benefits eligibility and enrollment policy, specializing in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will speak at this event. Rachel has over ten years of experience partnering with government agencies, policymakers, and community stakeholders to design policies and programs that reduce hunger and improve health. Rachel currently serves as a policy and advocacy consultant to non-profits and provides technical assistance to state and county agencies that administer public benefits programs. She also has extensive advocacy experience at the state and national level, fighting to protect and strengthen critical nutrition programs, including SNAP, WIC, CACFP, and School Meals.
