Call for Papers: The 28th Annual Health Economics Conference (AHEC) October 19-20, 2017

The Department of Health Policy and Management, Sol Price School of Public Policy, University of Southern California, are pleased to host the 28th Annual Health Economics Conference (AHEC) October 19-20, 2017.

A small number of papers (approximately 12) will be selected for the conference.  Approximately one hour will be devoted to each paper in order to facilitate in-depth discussion (around 30 minutes for the presenting author, 15 minutes for an assigned discussant, and 15 minutes for discussion with the audience). We invite both theoretical and empirical papers on health economics topics and encourage the participation of economists in all fields whose current research focuses on health care issues. Papers addressing issues of quality, coverage and access are particularly sought, though submissions on any area of health economics will receive full consideration. We will aim for a mix of scholars – established and new to the field. Papers will be chosen based on their originality, degree of innovation, and rigor.

AHEC is an invitation-only conference with attendance restricted to people actively participating as presenters or discussants. For the full Call for Papers, visit AHEC 2017.
