On March 23, McMaster welcomes Dr. Gary Evans of Cornell University as a distinguished Hooker visiting professor. Dr. Evans will give a free public talk - all are welcome.

An informal reception with light refreshments will take place before the talk from 4:30pm-5pm.

Poverty is bad for children, but why? In this talk, Dr. Evans suggests that one of the main reasons for the harmful impacts of poverty on children is because of cumulative risk exposure.

Professor Evans is an environmental and developmental psychologist interested in how the physical environment affects human health and well-being among children. His specific areas of expertise include the environment of childhood poverty, children's environments, cumulative risk and child development, environmental stressors, and the development of children's environmental attitudes and behaviors.
