Walk in their shoes

Poverty simulation

Community and primary care teams became unified in their understanding of poverty by walking in someone else’s shoes for an afternoon. A poverty simulation was a powerful experience that opened their eyes to preconceived notions, biases and agendas. ​

A “poverty simulation” with Joanne's community and Primary Care Network transformed how they thought about poverty and the sense of urgency they felt to work together towards a common goal.

Kalyna Country PCN, Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the community of Vermilion brought together a large group of people who put themselves in the shoes of those living with financial strain. This graphic captures the essence of their story, how they felt and what they said. Take a closer look at some of the aha moments in this graphic recording.
