The papers in this session examine several self-control problems apparent in health economics –
eating habits, obesity, and medicine adherence. These papers try to address these issues in
different ways and thus, they provide important contrasts. Two of the three papers focus on
behaviors among children for whom life-style changes may reap large rewards. Since behaviors
facing self-control problems have a large impact on health care costs, understanding and
mitigating these behaviors is quite important.
The 3rd Biennial Conference of the American Society of Health Economists took place at Cornell University.
