Evan Roberts, PhD

We would like to recognize and celebrate CHAI’s Members, Community Partners and Ambassadors! This month we are featuring Evan Roberts, PhD, an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota, Program in the History of Medicine.

Prof. Roberts recently received funding from the National Institute on Aging (R21AG077099) to examine the causal effects of wealth on life expectancy. Using a set of unique records from a land redistribution program in early-twentieth century New Zealand that awarded farms and low-interest loans by lottery, Dr. Roberts and colleagues will trace lottery winners and losers into New Zealand’s comprehensive vital statistics system. Their research will examine how wealth transfers affected life expectancy across two generations.
