Community Action Poverty Simulation
3 pm - 5:30 pm, JHSPH Feinstone Hall
Open to students only from the JHU Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health

Keynote Speaker:
We are pleased to have Dr. Katherine S. Newman, James B Knapp Dean of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, present our opening remarks.  Dr. Newman is a widely published expert on poverty and the working poor and has led major interdisciplinary initiatives at Princeton and Harvard Universities.

The Simulation:
The purpose of the Poverty Simulation is to build awareness of the issues surrounding poverty in an urban environment. Participants will  role-play the lives of low-income families, from single parents trying to care for their children to senior citizens trying to maintain their self sufficiency on Social Security. The task of each family is to provide food, shelter and other basic necessities during the simulation while interacting with various community resources.

Space is limited and RSVP is required to participate.
Sign up by emailing source@jhsph.edu no later than Monday, March 28th.
