Activities

The Institute on Health Economics, Health Behaviors and Disparities supports and strengthens the intellectual community at Cornell studying health economic behaviors such as smoking, alcohol abuse, drug use, risky sex, and diets and sedentary lifestyles that contribute to obesity. 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 department of Policy Analysis and Management.
