A new approach to poverty?
Good afternoon, welcome to WMNFs Radioactivity program. Iâm Rob Lorei.
Coming up: Weâll hear about a novel project in Philadelphia to fight poverty. And later, in light of the presidentâs summit meeting on health care and the word that General Motors is on the brink of collapse, weâll talk about health care reform with one of the countryâs leading experts on Canadian style single payer health care.
But first some listener comments about yesterdayâs program. A lot of people wanted to comment about Rush Limbaughâs emergence as one of the leading Republican voices in the country.
On the Tampa campus of the University of South Florida a Department of Geography colloquium will explore the issue âThe End of Poverty: Is it Possible?â with Pennsylvania State University Professor Lakshman Yapa on March 6 at 1:15 p.m. in the Chemistry Building Room 217. This event is free and open to the public.
Yapa will discuss the Philadelphia Urban Poverty Project, an example of an unconventional approach to finding answers to the problem of poverty.
Professor Yapa joins us right now.comments powered by Disqus
