Faculty Scholars Program
"The Arline and Pete Harman Faculty Scholar Award presents a remarkable opportunity for me to cultivate new skills in cost-effectiveness methods through didactic coursework and experiential training. With this award, we are collaborating with national experts to gather cost data for an ongoing R01 study (Water First) that we are conducting to examine how promoting fresh water intake in schools impacts childrens' intake of sugary drinks and obesity. This data will support future proposals to estimate the long-term cost-effectiveness and population health impacts of the Water First intervention."
