Hammer Health Sciences Building - Room LL 106

This talk will discuss the use of microsimulation modeling and related techniques to answer questions about the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases that are rapidly emerging in low- and middle-income countries. The discussion will proceed through a series of examples in India concerning the use of modeling and operations research techniques to understand the implications of alternative prevention, screening, and healthcare delivery strategies to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in the setting of significant resource constraints.
