Virtual Seminar on the Economics of Risky Health Behaviours (VERB)
Virtual Seminar on the Economics of Risky Health Behaviours (VERB) is an adaptation to the situation during the COVID-19 epidemic and will allow researchers worldwide to share information about their research on the economics of health behaviours, including smoking, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, poor diet, physical inactivity, obesity, risky sex, self-harm, and suicide. Studies may examine causes of these behaviours, their consequences, or the effects of policies or interventions to prevent and reduce these behaviours.
Presentations in this seminar will mainly be of two types. First, there will be presentations of single research papers, as is common in most university seminars. These will largely be reserved for early-career scholars, including advanced graduate students, postdocs, and assistant professors. These will not be recorded unless the presenter requests.
Second, there will be 'keynotes' by senior scholars, who will present an overview of an entire area of research related to the economics of health behaviors. These will be recorded and available for professors to assign to students as part of the curriculum of their health economics courses.
