Institute on Health Economics, Health Behaviors and Disparities
The Institute for Health Economics, Health Behaviors and Disparities supports and strengthens the intellectual community at Cornell studying topics in the area of health economics, in particular the economics of health behaviors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, diets and sedentary lifestyles that contribute to obesity, drug use, and risky sex. Activities of the Institute include a weekly lunchtime research seminar, course sequences at both the Ph.D. and advanced undergraduate levels, and hosting visiting scholars. The Institute, co-directed by John Cawley and Don Kenkel, is operationally housed within the Cornell Population Center (CPC).
Adam Biener, Ph.D. Student in Economics, Lehigh University, will be with us the week of August 11.
