Penn-CMU Roybal Center on Behavioral Economics and Health.

We are pleased to announce that the Center was a recipient of one of 12 Roybal Center awards in 2009 from the National Institute on Aging (Volpp PI, Loewenstein Co-PI).  The Roybal Centers Program was established to translate promising social and behavioral basic research findings into programs, tools, practices and policies that will improve the lives of older adults.  The aims of the Penn-CMU Roybal Center on Behavioral Economics and Health will be to leverage resources to advance translation of behavioral economic concepts to improve health behaviors and health care delivery and work with public and private sector entities to design and test scalable interventions and disseminate findings.  Please stay tuned for new pilot project solicitations in the coming years as well as information about other new programs.
