Simulation exposes students to poverty issues

Playing the role of an 85-year-old woman who lives alone, Hilary Sartain, School of Dentistry student, "buys" groceries from Rondah Marks, chief marketing officer, during a poverty simulation exercise for students Sept. 5.

Sartain was one of approximately 100 UMMC students who participated in the simulation, which provides a glimpse of some of the challenges their future patients may face and how those challenges could affect their health-care options and decisions.

The Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities organized and hosted the simulation, which was sponsored by a grant from Entergy Mississippi.
