HE@Cam are happy to welcome you to a talk by Dr Michael Laxy, the Institute of Health Economics and Health Care Management (Helmholtz Zentrum München).

Randomized trials have shown that lifestyle interventions are effective in preventing type 2 diabetes and with the National Diabetes Prevention Program those lifestyle interventions have been implemented on a large scale in the United States. By using a decision analytic model framework and best available data, this seminar aims to analyze the expected long-term costs and health gains of paying for lifestyle intervention programs in the Medicaid population. Results will be presented from both, a health care system and a narrow Medicaid perspective.

Time: 15:00-16:00, Monday May 20th, 2019 Venue: Large seminar Room, Institute of Public Health, Cambridge

All welcome. Part of the HE@Cam seminars 2018/19 series.
