NYU’s Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Decision Making (IISDM) is joining forces with the Kavli Foundation to design and execute the most ambitious and comprehensive study of human health and behavior literally ever attempted: the Kavli HUMAN Project. This transformative study is focused on elucidating novel insights in human health and behavior, and will involve following the life tracks of some 10,000 New York City residents over the course of 10-20 years. Throughout the design phase we have been holding Kavli Futures Workshops to gain input from scientists on what such a neuroeconomic longitudinal study should look like.
We would like to invite you to participate in the next two of these events, each of which will be a dinner and town hall-style discussion about the Kavli HUMAN Project:
Location: Sheraton Dallas Hotel

These events are free to attend and located in close proximity to the meeting sites for their respective conferences. The only price of admission is your constructive feedback!
