Faculty photo for Kevin Stroupe

I am an associate professor in the Parkinson School at Loyola. I am also a researcher at the Center of Innovation for Complex Chronic Healthcare, a health services researcher center funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs at the Hines VA Hospital. I earned a BS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a PhD in Economics from Indiana University Bloomington. It is a pleasure to be on faculty at the Parkinson School where I teach health economics and policy analysis. When not teaching, I enjoying playing the piano and spending time with family and friends.

Research Interests

My research interests include computational statistics, cost-effectiveness analysis, pharmacoeconomics, economic analysis, and health policy analysis.


Education
  • BS in Mathematical Sciences (Computer Science concentration), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • MA in Economics, Indiana University Bloomington
  • PhD in Economics, Indiana University Bloomington

What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

Teaching and working in the Parkinson School is very rewarding because of the strong commitment to the training and success of public health professionals.

Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

My area of specialization is health economics. This field is important to the health of the public because it examines how healthcare systems work and how to improve health outcomes during individuals’ interactions with the healt hcare systems.
