On Friday, November 8, Marissa Hall will present “Health warning labels: Applying behavioral science experiments to inform public policy” as part of the Carolina Population Series 2019-2020 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.

Marissa Hall uses behavioral science to inform policies to prevent cancer and other chronic diseases. Much of her research focuses on the impact of pictorial tobacco product warnings on both intended and unintended outcomes. She is also leading several experiments to examine the impact of obesity prevention policies such as sugar-sweetened beverage health warnings and taxes, with a focus on preventing childhood obesity among Latinx populations. Her research is currently supported by a K01 Career Development Award from NIH and grants from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The Carolina Population Center hosts a weekly Friday lecture on a topic that enhances our understanding of population-related changes. The 2019-2020 Interdisciplinary Research Seminars will feature talks related to aging trajectories, health behavior, the Zika virus, and the beverage tax – among other topics.

All seminars are held from 12:00 - 1:00 pm in Carolina Square Room 2002 at 123 W. Franklin St. unless otherwise indicated.

Instructors: To arrange for class attendance, contact CPC (cpc@unc.edu) by the Monday before the seminar. Streaming may be available and must be arranged at least one week in advance.
