The Center for Global Development is proud to be hosting Prof. Michael Kremer (Harvard) and Sarah Baird (GWU) on Monday, May 16, 12:00-1:30pm as part of the Massachusetts Avenue Development Seminar (MADS) series.  They'll be presenting the long-term, follow-up results of Prof. Kremer's research on deworming in Kenyan schools that shows significant, long-term gains in employment and earnings among dewormed children

The presentation will draw from Kremer and Baird's recent paper, Worms at Work: Long-run Impact of Child Health Gains.

*The Massachusetts Ave. Development Seminar (MADS) is a ten year-old research seminar series that brings some of the world’s leading development scholars to discuss their new research and ideas. The presentations meet an academic standard of quality and are at times technical, but retain a focus on a mixed audience of researchers and policymakers.
