UCBRFA Distinguished Faculty Seminar Series: Professor Jane Menken

Join us for an educational evening with Distinguished Professor Jane Menken, who will present a virtual lecture titled "Population and Health around the World: A Demographer’s Journey."

Professor Menken's talk will focus on interventions intended to improve health and wellbeing and evaluations of their impacts – intended and unintended. She will spotlight two projects of hers:

  • Long-term impacts (35 years) of a maternal and child health and family planning program in a rural area of Bangladesh; and
  • The impacts of expanded access to the full range of contraceptives in Colorado on female high school graduation.

She will also touch on two additional ongoing projects:

  • Effects of a post-apartheid pension plan that no longer was racially based in an area of South Africa with high HIV prevalence; and
  • Consequences of decentralization of health services in rural Honduras on maternal and child health.
