Alberta Health Economics Study Group 2018

The Alberta Health Economics Study Group (AHESG) aims to bring together Alberta based health economists for a day of lively discussion about current research and provides an opportunity for networking. The objective of AHESG meetings is to promote a study group atmosphere despite large numbers. All papers are pre-circulated and discussed in 45 minute-long sessions using discussants rather than author presentations. This session focused on the research of students and trainees and was a great opportunity to get feedback on early draft papers. The AHESG welcomes people from all backgrounds with an interest in Health Economics.
