Presentation: Treating Poverty as a Disease

Treating Poverty as a Disease

Presented by Marcella Wilson, Ph.D., CEO, Matrix Human Services

Wednesday, November 20, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
1000 Holt St., Norfolk, VA 23504

Poverty is a disease and the number of children and families living in poverty in this country is beyond alarming. Dr. Wilson’s Transition To Success (TTS™) Model frames a logical process to fight poverty and drive self sufficiency. TTS™ impacts children, families, teens, adults and our healthcare system. Most promising, this model can be implemented today without legislative or policy change.

Come experience a dynamic presentation on the devastating impact of poverty driven by a dysfunctional system of care. Together, we will learn of a new, promising framework that defines and treats poverty as a disease. Co-hosted by The Basilica of Saint Mary and The Up Center. Free and open to the public. Reserve your seat here.

Marcella Wilson PhD, CEO at Matrix Human Services, applies her extensive knowledge in healthcare and human services to creating a presentation that is educational and inspirational. Dr. Wilson promotes a system of care that is scalable, sustainable, measurable and can be implemented within current funding streams.
