Jesse Heitner is in his fourth year as an SD student in the Economics major in the Department of Global Health and Population. He is also a part of the HSPH Interdisciplinary Concentration in Infectious Disease Epidemiology. His varied interests include, but aren’t limited to, child health, sanitation, infectious diseases, cost-effectiveness, health behaviors, and quantitative methods. Though his previous work had focused more on East Africa, Jesse has recently decided to switch gears and is starting to focus in China. He has been quite enjoying learning Mandarin. Slowly. His current research is a randomized experiment using text-messages to educate expecting mothers in Shaanxi, China about antenatal and newborn health topics, as well as a randomized experiment in Dar es Salaam on how to best motivate motorcycle drivers to wear their helmets. He is very grateful to be the first recipient of the Sumner L. Feldberg Fellowship at HSPH.
