Dr. Stacy Lindau, professor at Pritzker School of Medicine in the Departments of OB/GYN and Medicine-Geriatrics, leads a program to help combat hunger called “Feed First.” With six food pantries located throughout Comer Children’s Hospital, they are serving a profound solution in the fight against a condition known as “food insecurity.”

On this episode of Knowledge Applied, Dr. Lindau shares how she decided to address what she called a “real humanitarian need,” the benefits of the food pantries both for families as well as hospital staff, and how the program is providing critical data for future medical study.
