October 29, 2007


Davina C. Ling, assistant professor and director of the Center for Study of Economics of Aging and Health, will be one of the panelists at the Dec. 1 Aids symposium on campus. She has published numerous papers on her HIV/AIDS-related studies. Some of the topics she has researched in the past year include the environmental health and safety of Chinese sex workers and the psychological health and suicidal tendencies among female street sex workers. “A lot of my publications have to do with health behaviors and intervention among those who are most at-risk for AIDS,” Ling said, adding that she lectures on the topic often and includes it in her economics of health course.
