Oct 3 - 5, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC
The format of the workshop will follow the traditional structure of the American Health Economics Conference (AHEC), National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Conferences, and the European Workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics where an entire hour will be devoted to each of about 9/10 papers. Unlike the traditional format, however, the discussant will present the paper, followed by the author's rebuttal and open discussion.
AHEW provides a forum to discuss the use of econometric and other quantitative methods to address issues in health economics and policy, health services research, and outcomes research. It is the first meeting of its kind in North America and will facilitate the exchange of ideas among the growing number of health econometricians in the United States and Canada.
