[In this interview] she speaks about, chronic disease, microloans, how poverty looks across the world, and more…the research these days shows that it’s a lot deeper than that. There’s multiple pathways, that there’s the simple ability to afford things, like food or healthcare or housing, and there’s these biological effects of living in poverty that can lead to the development of chronic diseases. And that even when it comes to health behaviors that people have, that it’s not always a choice.
