On July 6th, Leah Asmelash published an article in North Carolina Health News about the School of Dentistry’s poverty simulation.

Third-year dental students spend eight weeks going out into communities around the state and treating patients, many from low-income families, as part of the Dentistry in Service to Communities program. Dr. Lew Lampiris recognized a need to improve his students understanding of the challenges facing their patients and patient’s families.

The article describes work by Dr. Lampiris and his team to present a poverty simulation as an educational tool for dental and nursing students as part of the Program on Health Workforce Research and Policy Seminar Series at the Cecil G. Sheps Center.
