Dr. Zimmerman has published extensively on the social and economic determinants of health. His research has illuminated how economic structure—including poverty and inequality—influence population health. His work has been distilled into the multi-level theory of population health. Read more
In one of the earliest agent-based models in economics, Dr. Zimmerman showed why it is rational for low-income people in a developing country to manage assets so conservatively that they end up with low returns—and remain stranded in poverty. This research has since formed the basis of an NGO strategy to improve access to crop insurance for low-income people, enabling them to engage in riskier, but more lucrative activities. Dr. Zimmerman has also published extensively on the effects of child media use on subsequent health and development. One of his papers showed the lack of any beneficial impact (and possible harm) of baby videos on language development, and was the foundation of a lawsuit before the Federal Trade Commission against what it argued were deceptive marketing claims made by Disney on behalf of its Baby Einstein franchise. The lawsuit was dropped after Disney agreed to stop making such claims. His recent research topics include simulated comparative effectiveness of public health policies; the effects of social and economic policy on population health; and the economics of health equity.
In addition, Dr. Zimmerman has a long-standing interest in ethics in public health, and has published pieces on the ethics of behavioral economics and a reanalysis of autonomy in public health. He currently teaches a class on Public Health Ethics.
Previously Chair of the Department of Health Policy & Management, Dr. Zimmerman now co-directs the Center for Health Advancement at UCLA, where he is PI of the Win-Win Project.
