Project Details

Produce Rx in High Risk Pregnant Mothers at TCHP.

Project Overview

This project evaluates the implementation and impact of a medically-tailored retail produce prescription program (Fresh Connect) on gestational weight gain, and other pregnancy and birth outcomes among high-risk pregnant mothers receiving care at Texas Children's Health Plan. Additionally, we will test the effectiveness of an  enhanced cardholder engagement on the redemption of the produce prescription at the retail grocery stores.
