The objective of the CHEGU International Advisory Board is to propose and follow research at CHEGU in view of the international development of the health-economics discipline. It is appointed jointly by the CHEGU steering group and the CHEGU director. It presently consists of the following four members:
Michael Grossman is a distinguished professor of economics at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), where he also directs the Health Economics Program. He has been the President of the American Society of Health Economists, and he was the first to receive the Victor Fuchs Award for lifetime contributions to the field of health economics. His research has focused on economic models of the determinants of health and the economics of substance use and abuse. His 1972 monograph introduced the concept of the individual as producer of his or her own health. It was a major achievement and a seminal contribution to economic theory. The “Grossman model” has been extremely influential on the development of health economics. He has published over 60 journal articles and over 30 book-chapters. Webpage of Michael Grossman
