Description: Dr. Richardson will present a general introduction to system dynamics modeling, including its history, purposes, principles, and methodology. Dr. Homer will describe several applications of system dynamics to health issues, including CDC-sponsored models on the growth of diabetes and obesity, a model of hospital surge capacity, and a model of cocaine use in the U.S. These models have supported goal setting, policy analysis, resource needs analysis, theory development, and estimation of hard-to-measure quantities.

Systems Methodologies for Solving Real-World Problems: System Dynamics Modeling

A series of four educational seminars featuring leaders in various areas of systems science. The purposes are to raise awareness of particularly promising methodologies; and improve our collective understanding about how and when they may be used effectively by behavioral and social scientists (including researchers, policy analysts, planners/evaluators, grant reviewers, journal editors and government officials).

The 2007 Symposia Series on Systems Science and Health is sponsored by the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research and CDC's Syndemics Prevention Network with support from the following NIH components: Division of Nutrition Research Coordination, Fogarty International Center, National Institute for Child Health and Human Development, National Institute for General Medical Sciences and the National Cancer Institute.
