Molly Rosenberg: Cash transfers to promote healthy aging in low-income settings: Triangulating evidence from rural South Africa
September 22 @ 12:00 pm
Molly Rosenberg (Indiana) will present “Cash transfers to promote healthy aging in low-income settings: Triangulating evidence from rural South Africa” as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2023-2024 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
Dr. Rosenberg is an epidemiologist and population health researcher who studies how social, structural, and economic factors influence health across the lifecourse. In her primary research line, Dr. Rosenberg examines how poverty alleviation interventions can influence health, and represents vulnerable populations in low-resource settings across the globe. Representative projects examine the impact of cash transfers on cognitive aging in rural South Africa (NIA R01AG069128, MPIs: Rosenberg and Kobayashi), the potential for microfinance to be used to promote natural disaster resilience in Haiti, and the association between an income generation program and healthcare utilization in Kenya. Trained as an infectious disease epidemiologist, Dr. Rosenberg also maintains research lines in the epidemiology of HIV and SARS-CoV-2.
