Healing Trauma, Healthy Communitites Conference
Science changes our views of the causes of poverty:
- No longer moral failure/bad choices of individuals
- Socioeconomic forces fundamentally shape our biology, but at level of genes and neurons
- Hopefully this can change the discussion around poverty
- Science can give us new tools to develop more effective policies addressing poverty
