FOOD PHARMACY FOR LOW-INCOME DIABETES PATIENTS




A very different kind of pharmacy opened in Redwood City on Wednesday. It's called a food pharmacy and is designed to encourage low-income people suffering with diabetes, to eat a healthy diet. It's the first of its kind ever to open in California. One woman was seen filling a medical prescription with groceries. She has type II diabetes, often linked to diet.
