Poverty in the Bronx: Forum and Simulation
Montefiore Hudson Valley Collaborative and Bronx Partners for Healthy Communities invite you to an informative and immersive program focused on the impact of poverty on our communities. Poverty has a direct link to poor health as evidenced in the Bronx where families live with significantly higher rates of chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Experts will explore the relationship between poverty and health disparities and how we can improve our community members’ experiences when they visit us for services. Participants will take on the roles of family members living on a limited budget and learn about the challenges and difficult choices they make and the toll it takes on their health and access to care. Upon completing the simulation, participants will be prepared to identify opportunities to improve health equity for patients in their own workplace.
