Economics and Epidemiology: Beyond Dollars and Cents
Dr. Jude Bayham
Associate Professor, Dept. of Agricultural and Resource Economics, Colorado State University
Assistant Professor, Dept. of Epidemiology, Colorado School of Public Health
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the interconnectedness of public health and economic outcomes. Yet interdisciplinary teams of infectious disease modelers and economists have been integrating the economic theory of human behavior into infectious disease models for over a decade.
Professor Bayham will highlight several insights from these interdisciplinary efforts, discussing their application during the COVID-19 pandemic and suggest a path forward for research on economic epidemiology.
This presentation will be held in the Toyota Auditorium of the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy. Guests may park in Volunteer Hall Garage on White Avenue at no charge by requesting a parking voucher from Baker Center staff.

3:30pm – 5:30pm: Kayak Excursion + River Cleanup
The Tennessee River and its waterways are home to more forms of life than any other river system in North America. More than 100 species of freshwater mussels and 270 species of fish can be found here, including some species not found anywhere else in the world. You can help protect their home—and have fun while doing it!
Join us for a guided kayak excursion and river cleanup at Third Creek. All materials (including kayaks and safety gear) will be provided by the Tennessee RiverLine.
Space is limited and registration is required; click here to register by COB November 1.
