Event description

Description

The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS) is a unique, interactive experience designed to help participants have a glimpse into what life may be like living with disparity. Participants will explore the realities of living with a small budget, limited time, and high stress by role-playing as familial units challenged by a specific set of circumstances. Participants will also learn about community resources that offer assistance for those in need.

The overall goal of this interprofessional education event is to bring together students, faculty, people in the community and representatives from local organizations to begin a dialogue addressing challenges faced daily by the many who live with disparity in our community. We hope to foster interprofessional collaboration among participants as we explore coordinated community outreach and access to social and health services.


Why participate?

  • Experience through simulation the challenges of living with limited resources
  • Learn about the important role of safety net programs
  • Gain empathy and compassion towards those living with disparity
  • Reflect and discuss your thoughts and feelings in an interactive session
  • Explore how different professions can work collaboratively to reduce disparity


Who will be participating?

Students, faculty and staff from different programs across campus, as well as community members and local organizations, will be in attendance.
