This week, consider the readings, the lecture, and the poverty simulation (http://playspent.org/ (Links to an external site.)) and discuss the following:
- Reflect upon your experience completing the poverty simulation (http://playspent.org/ (Links to an external site.)). For example – what surprised you? What didn’t surprise you? What was the take-away message?
- Is low socioeconomic status a public health problem? Justify your answer.
- Describe an intervention that could address disparities based on socioeconomic status.
