Business, community groups boost health partnerships

Investing in community health makes sense “in this political environment and in any political environment,” said Michel Nischan, founder of Wholesome Wave. His group won the Health Means Business’ Partnership of the Year award Thursday for its Los Angeles program, funded by Target, that allows doctors at Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center to write prescriptions for free fruits and vegetables that patients can fill at Target and farmer’s markets.
