This powerful workshop, led by Jodi Pfarr of Bridges Out of Poverty, will educate and inform the community about the effects of poverty on community health outcomes.
Jodi brings to her audiences the knowledge and awareness gained from direct experience with not-for-profit organizations. She has spent the majority of her career working in low-income housing for people with issues around mental illness and/or chemical dependency.
Jodi is uniquely qualified to give in-depth insight and lead an impactful discussion regarding the impact of generational poverty on the health of individuals and their communities.

A healthy community demonstrates an element of interconnectedness. When a healthy community initiative is working, a communal spirit develops, linking public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Healthy people make a strong community. These nine key health issues are the deliberations of Work Groups who represent a wide spectrum of interests and roles. They developed and are implementing strategies to make a strong community work well. Although there are challenges, we are taking a proactive approach to solving key issues in our community.
