• Provide an overview of research that indicates “poverty is making us sick.”
• Highlight how social capital and social interaction can be redesigned to improve health outcomes.
• Introduce a dialogue on how Robert Sapolsky’s “Theory of Social Coherence” is limiting access to health care within our health care systems and community health initiatives.
• Illustrate tools to address health inequities.

Organizations located in Chenango and Delaware counties are invited to attend this event. Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in meaningful learning, direct teaching, and large-group dialogue to address the Bridges Out of Poverty concepts and tools!
