HPRC Research Seminar
Date: Thursday, June 13, 10:00-10:50 am
Presenter: Norma Coe, PhD
"Healthy Aging: What you do in your prime matters"
Her presentation will examine the relationship between two decisions many people face in their 50's and 60's -- when to retire and whether to provide care for an elderly parent, and the health outcomes related to these decisions.
Dr. Coe is a health economist with expertise in the economics of aging, labor, and public economics. Her primary research focuses on how government policies interact with each other and how they influence individual behavior. Before coming to the UW, she was the Associate Director of Research at the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.
Location: HPRC conference room. Directions
The seminar will be followed by an HPRC staff meeting, 10:50 to 11:30. Guests are welcome to stay for the staff meeting.
