[Perspectives] Winnie Yip: tracking health policy and economics in China
Although not born into an academic family—her father was a Hong Kong businessman—it didn’t take Winnie Yip long to discover the rewards of learning. And at the best institutions. A degree in economics from the University of California, Berkeley, was followed, in 1994, by a PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Then it was research at Harvard and Oxford and now Harvard again—this time as its newly appointed Professor of the Practice of International Health Policy and Economics. The reward she’s acquired over this time is an international reputation in both these topics.
