Impact of high school sports on teenage pregnancies topic of BYU lecture Jan. 29

Joseph Price, from the Brigham Young University Economics Department, will discuss “The impact of High School Sports on Teenage Births” at a Women’s Studies Colloquium Thursday, Jan. 29, at noon in 4188 Joseph F. Smith Building.

Admission is free, and all are invited to attend.

Price will discuss the research he and Daniel Simon from Cornell University and Betsey Stevenson from Penn State University conducted concerning a change in pregnancy rates in the United States correlated to a change in female sports participation.

His research shows that high school athletes are less likely to have a teen birth. Price received his doctorate in economics from Cornell University.

The Women's Studies Colloquia is a scholarly forum for discussion, intellectual development and collaboration among students, faculty and others interested in participating in an interdisciplinary community of Women's Studies scholars.
