Feel free to bring your lunch, desserts and beverages will be provided.

Molly W. Metzger
Assistant Professor, George Warren Brown School of Social Work
Metzger’s research focuses on public policy, structural racism, and residential segregation in the United States. Her major projects have included a community action study of public housing preservation in Chicago, a national analysis of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, and most recently a collaboration with the St. Louis Housing Authority, in which she interviewed Section 8 renters about their housing options and preferences. Her teaching falls largely under the Brown School’s Social and Economic Development curriculum. She strives to engage students in real-world problem-solving in the St. Louis region.

Jason Q. Purnell 
Assistant Professor, George Warren Brown School of Social Work
Purnell’s research focuses on how socioeconomic and sociocultural factors influence cancer prevention and other health behaviors and whether combining asset accumulation with preventive health interventions increases preventive health behaviors in low-income populations. He leads the Working Group on Asset Building/Financial Capability and Health, a transdisciplinary, academic-community collaboration established to explore financial intervention as a means of addressing health disparities. Purnell is active in the St. Louis community personally and professionally, and serves on a number of organizational boards.
