Improving the Quality of Life for Residents of Neighborhoods of Concentrated Poverty

Tuesday, September 14 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Neighborhoods with high rates of poverty present challenges that negatively affect residents’ health and impede individuals in their choices and achievements. Even the most committed leaders often struggle to identify the interventions that will most meaningfully improve the lives of local residents.

Join Washington University’s Executive Vice Chancellor Hank Webber for an examination of these complex issues and a discussion of what fifty years of efforts have taught us about reducing multi-generational poverty.
