Meet Our Founder
Kwamane Liddell, JD, MHA, BSN
Kwamane Liddell, JD, MHA, BSN is a health equity visionary and business leader who has saved lives and believes healthy food should be accessible to every sick person. While Kwamane was an emergency department nurse, he witnessed the devastation that happens to families when they don’t have the right food at home. Those patients inspired him to create Nutrible, where he uses his experiences as a trauma nurse, healthcare lawyer, and entrepreneur to build technology that connects the current healthcare and grocery systems. Nutrible focuses on the most vulnerable patient populations and makes it easy for patients to access food that aligns with their medical, cultural, and financial needs.
See How Nutrible Reduces Readmissions!
According to the USDA Economic Research Service, the mean prevalence of food insecurity in the United States in 2019 was 10.5%. The rates of food insecurity among racial/ethnic minority groups were higher than the US mean rate, at 22.5% among Black populations and 18.5% among Hispanic populations. Additionally, patients who are malnourished are 50% more likely to be readmitted or die within 100 days post-discharge.
Nutrible exists to ensure patients who need it most have access to food regardless of their income, ethnic background, health literacy status, or physical ability.
