Korbin Liu


Korbin was one of the original JSI employees. He was born in Foochow, China and moved to Washington, DC in 1947. He received a doctorate in population sciences from the Harvard School of Public Health in 1976.

After JSI, Korbin went on to work at the Urban Institute for more than two decades. He was a nationally-recognized expert on health care after acute hospitalizations and on Medicare and Medicaid coverage. Korbin focused on long-term-care services, and he studied the likelihood of patients being admitted to nursing homes, the duration of their stays, and their risks of depleting personal resources and becoming eligible for Medicaid coverage.
