Education sessions at the ASSA

For those attending the ASSA meetings, here are all the sessions I could find related to economic education. Also, if anyone wants suggestions for places to eat / things to do while in San Diego, particularly if you want to get away from the Gaslamp, feel free to drop me an email - I love sharing San Diego with folks!
