A new System for Action (S4A) study aims to improve maternal and infant health by helping Medicaid-eligible persons receive access to healthy foods during pregnancy.

To link people in need with healthy food delivery from a local food bank or with direct cash assistance for food purchases, the Nourishing Beginnings program uses:

  • integrated data,
  • screening and referral systems, and
  • community health worker support.

S4A researchers at Case Western Reserve University collaborate with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, the Cleveland Department of Public Health, United Way of Cleveland, CareSource, MetroHealth, University Hospitals, and other community partners.

Systems for Action (S4A) is a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that is housed in the Department of Health Systems, Management & Policy at the Colorado School of Public Health. S4A research builds a Culture of Health by rigorously testing new ways of connecting the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems.
