More than a decade ago, Dr. Marcella Wilson took over a failing charity, and recognized two frequently opposing paradigms for addressing poverty: everyone had good intentions, but a “character flaw” mentality infused their efforts. Unlike other public health challenges, there was lack of a “science of poverty.” Join us for a joint presentation with Drs. Wilson, Osmick, and Kaminski about the evolving science of poverty, and how that knowledge can be applied to address poverty as a core social determinant of health to strive for healthier populations.
