The first thing I developed was something very simple called a clinical tool on poverty, a three-page handout offering a three-step approach to dealing with poverty in the context of a typical primary care appointment. It’s basically: Ask everybody about their #income, be aware of the evidence linking #poverty to poorer #health outcomes, and then actually do something about it — connect patients to supports.

Right? When I first saw this I was like SIGN ME UP!!!
