The prize awarded annually by the American Economic Association Prize is in memory of Elaine Bennett, who made significant contributions in economic theory and experimental economics and encouraged the work of young women in all areas of economics.
Nurse Practitioners Prescribing Medication for Older Patients — Is It Safe?
Many states allow nurse practitioners to independently prescribe drugs, a growing practice that critics argue can adversely affect quality of care. A Stanford-led study now indicates that NPs do just fine when prescribing medicine for seniors.

Maya Rossin-Slater and colleagues write in The Conversation that their research shows survivors of school shootings like the one in Uvalde, Texas, suffer long-term health, economic and financial burdens from their trauma.
Paid family leave is not a “silver bullet” for advancing gender equity in the workplace, says Maya Rossin-Slater, but it is beneficial for family health and well-being outcomes, particularly infant and maternal health and overall financial stability.
In a blow to arguments that a federal paid leave law would harm small businesses, a new study co-authored by SHP's Maya Rossin-Slater finds that support for paid leave among small employers is not only strong, but also increased as the pandemic added new strain to the work-life juggle.
Two projects launched at Stanford Health Policy are featured in the Stanford Department of Medicine 2021 Annual Report: the COVID Modeling Project and Maya Rossin-Slater's work to mentor women studying for their PhDs in economics.
President Joe Biden is expected to propose paid family leave as part of a revamp of what advocates call the nation’s “care infrastructure.” Stanford Health Policy's Maya Rossin-Slater looks at a key question at the heart of the debate: Are businesses hurt when workers take time off with pay to care for a child or ailing family member?
New research by SHP's Maya Rossin-Slater shows that borderline ADHD diagnoses appear to be behind the dramatic increase in the number of cases in the last few decades. Those cases also appear to have a snowball effect in that younger siblings and cousins of children who receive these marginal ADHD diagnoses are often diagnosed with the condition as well.
The most comprehensive study of American children who experience gun violence at school finds they are less likely to graduate from high school or enroll in college — and less likely to hold a job as a young adult. Co-authored by SHP's Maya Rossin-Slater, the researchers estimate a loss in lifetime income of $115,550 per shooting-exposed student.
The world of economics has not always opened its arms to women — in fact it can be outright hostile. But the field influences so much public policy, so SHP medical economist Maya Rossin-Slater brings together other early career economists to mentor and encourage aspiring economists from around the world.
School shootings are a horrific U.S. phenomenon. And the tragedies aren’t limited to the shootings themselves. SHP's Maya Rossin-Slater finds that fatal shootings have a lingering impact on the mental health of those who survive them.
The coronavirus pandemic is exacerbating domestic violence, particularly among low-income families. Research by Maya Rossin-Slater finds that babies born to mothers who experience an assault during pregnancy are more likely to weigh much less and be born prematurely — resulting in long-term deficits in health and well-being.
