On Friday, April 6th, 2018, I spoke about poverty and the brain at TEDxGreenville. During this 10 minute talk (that can be watched here), I discussed poverty's effects on the brain and the fact that it creates chronic stress.
In the talk, I told the audience that being involved with non-profit organizations can help lift people out of poverty. There are many wonderful non-profit communities that deserve our time and financial resources. Follow SBC's Instagram account to learn about a few non-profits in South Carolina.
PS: Here are links to a few things I discussed in the talk:
