Speakers Who Inspire: Poverty Researcher and Author Kathryn Edin, Ph.D.

November 7, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

The Foundation is committed to exploring the causes and consequences of poverty and its significant impact on mental, physical and social health. To support this effort, we have invited one of the nation’s leading poverty researchers, Kathryn Edin, Ph.D., to come to our community and lend her expert voice to the conversation.

Dr. Edin focuses on welfare and low-wage work, family life and neighborhood contexts. She has authored some 80 journal articles and eight books, including $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, which she co-wrote with H. Luke Shaefer. She is the Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. At Johns Hopkins, she co-directs the Poverty and Inequality Research Lab and is founding faculty director of the 21st Century Cities Initiative, which seeks to bring cross-disciplinary teams of scholars together to work on critical urban challenges.
