Bevan Foundation joins medical students to discuss poverty

The Bevan Foundation were delighted to be invited to give a presentation to medical students at Cardiff University on poverty in Wales

The connections between poverty and ill-health are well established. The Bevan Foundation were therefore delighted to be invited once again by Cardiff University to give a lecture to some of its medical students, on poverty in Wales.

The Bevan Foundation has been giving a lecture on poverty in Wales to some of the University’s medical students for a number of years now. With Covid 19 highlighting, like never before, the connections between health, poverty and inequality the lecture this year felt even more timely.

The lecture was given by Steffan Evans who said “The links between health and poverty are well known it was therefore great to see so many future doctors and medical practitioners take an interest in developing their understanding of poverty. Health practitioners, particularly those working in primary care are often confronted with the impact of poverty in their work. Developing the understanding of future medics as to the causes of poverty is therefore vital if we are to find holistic solutions.”

If you are interested in learning more about poverty in Wales and would like the Bevan Foundation to come to speak about our work on poverty and inequality at an event you’re organising then get in touch with us. We’d be delighted to come and share our ideas with you!
