Purdue to host agricultural economics research summit
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The third annual Midwest Graduate Student Summit on Regional, Population and Health Economics will take place Friday and Saturday (April 9 and 10) at the Krannert Building and Rawls Hall on Purdue University's West Lafayette campus. The summit is hosted by the Department of Agricultural Economics' Space, Health and Population Economics (SHaPE) Group.
The summit is an opportunity for students from several universities to showcase their research in regional, population or health economics and share ideas. Students also give feedback on the projects presented at the summit. Presentation topics include housing and land use, health and nutrition, immigration and migration, and climate change.
Students presenting this year are from Purdue, the University of Illinois, Michigan State University and Ohio State University.
Samantha Snyder, a doctoral student in agricultural economics and one of the event organizers, said the summit brings together students, advisers and other faculty.
"The summit is best geared towards students at all stages of the research process, as well as faculty who typically advise students in these disciplines," Snyder said. ?"If students or faculty are interested in attending, of course they are welcome. Even better, if they'd like to participate in the future, we hope they'll get a feel for the summit this year and help increase the breadth of research presented next year."
Registration will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday (April 9) in the Krannert Building, Room 661. For more information, contact Snyder at 765-494-4307, firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit http://www.agecon.purdue.edu/academic/summit/
