Join the UC Center Sacramento on Wednesday, March 1stat 12 noon for the UCCS Bacon Public Lectureship by Professor Marianne Page, Department of Economics, Deputy Director of the Center for Poverty Research, University of California, Davis and moderated by Daphne Hunt Chief Consultant to the California State Assembly Committee on Human Services. Professor Page will be speaking on “The Intergenerational Transmission of Poverty and the Long Reach of Child Health and Nutrition Programs”. In this lecture, Professor Page will make an evidence-based case that large scale public health and nutrition interventions provide far reaching benefits for poor children, and that these programs are crucial levers towards reducing the intergenerational transmission of poverty, even if their benefits are not transparent in current official poverty statistics.
