Health Economics Workshop
The Health Economics Workshop (HEW) is a weekly interdisciplinary workshop that includes participants from the Social and Biological Sciences as well as several professional schools (Business, Law, Public Policy, and Social Service Administration) and faculty outside the University of Chicago. The workshop provides an important venue for presentation of research in the areas of health economics, medical decision-making, health services research, health policy, population health and related topics, and 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 Geri Harges. 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 2012—2013 series is provided by CHeSS, the Department of Health Studies, the Harris School of Public Policy Studies, and the AHRQ Health Services Research Training Program.
Workshops are held on Thursdays from 3:30-5:00pm in Room 140-B at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy Studies (1155 E. 60th Street).
