Social inequality has led to poor health in people experiencing poverty. People facing social marginalization and isolation lack access to the same health care as those who are wealthier. Drawing on Facing Project narratives and social science literature, this poster will provide an analysis of the impact of social inequality on health. It will discuss the history, causes, and elements of social change that the future may hold. Finally, social insurance and public assistance programs such as Medicare and Medicaid will be discussed as well as their relevance to addressing such health disparities.
