Craig Garthwaite will present at the Schaeffer Center as part of the Fall 2018 Seminar Series.
Professor Garthwaite is an Associate Professor of Strategy and the Director of the Program on Healthcare at Kellogg (HCAK) at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern. He is an applied microeconomist whose research examines the effects of government policies and social phenomena with a focus on health and biopharmaceutical sectors. His recent work has focused on the private sector effects of the Affordable Care Act, including the labor supply effects of large insurance expansions, the changes in uncompensated hospital care resulting from public insurance expansions, and the responses of non-profit hospitals to financial shocks. In prior work, he has examined the impact of government cash assistance programs on health and the effect of changes in expected mortality from the emergence of crack-cocaine markets on educational attainment.
