Faculty Forum: Climate Change and Childhood Obesity
"Conducting Student/Faculty Research in Economics Using Interdisciplinary Student Teams and International/Community Partners: The Case of Climate Change and Childhood Obesity," presented by Dr. Eric Jamelske, Professor of Economics at UW-Eau Claire. This presentation will identify two important economic issues and outline research efforts to provide data and information to stimulate dialogue regarding how to improve these situations. Each issue will be briefly described leading to research questions for each issue. Additionally, this presentation will outline how I employ teams of interdisciplinary students in collaboration with community partners and international partners to generate data for investigation. The presentation will conclude with a glimpse of some of our most recent results for each project followed by discussion.
