October 17, 2016

 

 

Angela Duckworth of Arts & Sciences, Wharton's Katherine Milkman and Med's Kevin Volppbelieve their team can learn to make behavior change stick. They've created a video that seeks to address this dilemma. 

 

In their words: "Our project unites an interdisciplinary team of scientists with leading practitioners in education, healthcare, and consumer financial services to address the question: How can we make behavior change stick? Among the millions of people we will reach through this project, we aim to reduce high school and college dropouts, financial insecurity, and premature deaths by 10%. Ultimately, our solution will benefit far larger populations."
