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 opportunities 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 sessions using discussants rather than author presentations. The AHESG session will focus on the research of students and trainees, and will be a great opportunity to get feedback on early draft papers. The AHESG welcomes people from all backgrounds with an interest in Health Economics!
The AHESG provides an excellent opportunity for students to present work to senior researchers, enjoy dinner and networking with other students, researchers, and faculty, and it looks great on a CV.
AHESG attendees are offered the following free of charge:
- All day meeting, including keynote address on September 9th, 2022
