Health Economics Workshop

The Health Economics Workshop (HEW) is a weekly interdisciplinary workshop which includes participants from the Social and Biological Sciences Division; several professional schools (Business, Law, Public Policy, and Social Service Administration); and faculty outside the University of Chicago.

The workshop provides an important venue to present research in the areas of health economics; medical decision-making; health services research; health policy; and topics related to population health.

 

It also provides a forum for mentoring and professional development of students and junior faculty.
                              
Workshops are organized by faculty members Rena Conti, Tamara Konetzka, Tina Shih, and Fabrice Smieliauskas, with the assistance of HEW Administrator Susie McGee. Funding for HEW has been provided by the Merck Company Foundation; the Center for Health Administration Studies; the Population Research Center; NORC; and the University of Chicago.

 

Funding for the 2014-2015 series is provided by CHeSS, the Department of Public Health Sciences, the Harris School of Public Policy Studies, and the AHRQ Health Services Research Training Program. For more information or to sign up for email announcements, please contact us at chess@bsd.uchicago.edu. To schedule a presentation, contact faculty organizer Tamara Konetzka.

 

Workshops are held on Thursdays from 3:30-5:00pm in Room W-229 at the University of Chicago Medical Center (5841 S. Maryland Avenue).
