Using Cost-effectiveness Analysis to Inform Policy Responses to Childhood Obesity
On September 24, 2015, the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) hosted the Using Cost-effectiveness Analysis to Inform Policy Responses to Childhood Obesity Webinar. Due to its impact on child health and lifetime impact on health, healthcare costs and productivity, childhood obesity is an important barrier to self-sufficiency and well-being. During this free Webinar, SSRC Emerging Scholar Dr. Michael Long provided an introduction to simulation models and cost-effectiveness analysis in obesity policy research, including evaluation of four strategies to prevent childhood obesity conducted by the Childhood Obesity Intervention Cost-Effectiveness Study (CHOICES) project.
