When we discuss human capital investment, the conversation is typically centered around going to college. But, what about investments in health? IN this session, we will look at traditionally taught macro concepts with health care examples. We will also work with two newly created lessons that explore the impact of COVID-19 on unemployment and RGDP.

There is no charge for High School Teachers to participate in the Health Economics Institute. All sessions will be held online daily from July 6 through July 17. See agenda for details at: http://www.econed-in.org/HealthEconInstitute.asp. Register for as many sessions as you like or all sessions!

Participants may earn 1 point for each session. High school teachers who teach or integrate economics into their classrooms will:

Review and reinforce an understanding of economic concepts identified in the Economics Standards. Share best teaching practices relating these concepts to current health economic micro, macro and public policy issues.
