Motivation in Motion: Unraveling the Impact of Wellness Incentives

May 6 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Featured speaker: Heather Royer, Professor, UCSB

Heather Royer’s research focuses primarily on Health Economics. Her work focuses on three main areas: disentangle the causal effect of education on health and fertility, how incentives affect healthy behaviors such as exercise and eating healthy, and the effects of changes to health care services. Her work has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

About the Event: The use of incentives is a common policy prescription to improve health behaviors. This talk will highlight some of the recent findings on the effects of incentives on health behaviors and wellness. I will then attempt to triangulate these findings to provide guidance on how to use incentives effectively. The talk will end with a discussion of unanswered questions in hopes of inspiring more work on the impact of incentives on health behaviors.
