The College of Health Interprofessional Poverty Simulation (COHIPPS) is a unique, interactive shared experience intended to help students understand what it may be like to live in poverty. People living on a fixed income are often faced with difficult choices. It is important for health professions students to understand how poverty affects the treatment and/or compliance regimen of people living with poverty. Students will explore the realities of living with significant financial constraints, limited time, and high stress by role-playing as an individual challenged by a specific set of conditions.

Registration for this event will be required, and is open to College of Health Majors.
If you're interested in volunteering as a facilitator of the event, please contact Dr. Justin Tobyas
