BISG Lunch with Alister Martin (Massachusetts General Hospital / Brigham and Women’s Hospital)


Monday, September 11, 2017, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


Darman Room, Taubman Building, Harvard Kennedy School

Join us for a Behavioral Insights Student Group Lunch with Alister Martin. Alister is a MD/MPP graduate (Harvard Medical School/Harvard Kennedy School) and is an emergency physician in Boston who combines his knowledge of behavioral science with his real-life experience in the medical field to investigate how behavioral science can improve health care issues. 

Alister's talk will focus on two projects: 1. How to nudge physicians to complete a Suboxone Certification (the most effective form of treatment for treating opoid addiction), 2. Nudging higher rates of antibiotic prescription pick-up after Emergency Department visits. 

There is also the potential to turn this into a Policy Analysis Exercise (PAE) or internship, and Alister is happy to discuss this with interested students after the talk.
