Croft Visiting Speaker: Pascaline Dupas

Professor Dupas will be speaking on Improving Health Outcomes for the Bottom Billion. Many poor people around the world still do not benefit from essential health products. An estimated two-thirds of child deaths could be prevented with increased coverage of vaccines, point-of-use water treatment, iron fortification, and insecticide-treated bednets. In this lecture, Pascaline Dupas, Associate Professor of Economics at Stanford University and co-chair of the Health Sector at MIT's Jameel Poverty Action Lab (JPAL) will examine the factors that limit the flow of products from the producer’s laboratory bench to the end users. 

Thursday, April 4th 
at 7:00-8:00pm
in the Joseph C. Bancroft Conference Room (Croft 107)

All students who attend will receive 300 Croft dollars. Croft lectures are free and open to the public.
