Economics undergraduate students Louis Tomayko and Jasmine Jackson presented their research project “The Core Drivers of Excessive Prescription Drugs Use and Expenditures in the state of TN: A County-level investigation” at the recent University of Memphis 'Works in Progress Symposium'. The work was completed under the direction of Dr. Albert Okunade as part of the requirements for the Honors section of ECON 2120. They were judged in two separate presentation time slots by six independent judges including faculty from several disciplines. Following the judging, Tomayko and Jackson were selected as two of thirteen students from across the campus for scholarships to allow them to present their research at the 2011 National Conference on Undergraduate Research in New York.
