Professor Greg Duncan discusses the connections between poverty and child development, and suggests social policy strategies to improve the welfare of children in poverty. He discusses bodily stress responses in the case of child abuse and deprivation, compromised immune function, and nutritional adequacy as outcomes of child poverty. The podcast also includes psycho-cognitive and physical effects with relation to economic deprivation.
