PA Speaker Series: Robert Michael and The Five Life Decisions

February 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

All members of the Lab Community are invited as UChicago distinguished service professor and dean Robert Michael takes us through the The Five Life Decisions that are made in the teens and early twenties. Choices matter. Michael won’t tell us or our kids what to choose. Instead, he’ll teach us how to make smarter choices. He focuses on five critical decisions we all face about college, career, partners, health, and parenting. A focus on the science of scarcity and choice—concepts used to guide major business decisions and shape national legislation—can offer a solid foundation for our own lives. There’s no singular formula for always making the right choice. But the adaptable framework and rich data at the heart of Michael’s research and book can help increase confidence in life’s major decisions.

We hope you will join us or a conversation about these decisions, and we welcome and urge UHigh students to attend as well. Please click on this link to RSVP and preorder the book. For more information please contact Christie Henry.
