Stern Faculty Spotlight Presents: Professor Michael Dickstein

This month’s Stern Faculty Spotlight features Dr. Michael Dickstein, Assistant Professor of Economics. He teaches Healthcare Markets to MBAs, specializes in healthcare economics, and more recently has focused his research on the design of health insurance marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act.
