AHESG 2024

Alberta Health Economics Study Group 2024

The Alberta Health Economics Study Group (AHESG) brings together people from all backgrounds with an interest in health policy and health economics for a day of lively discussion about current research in health economics in Alberta. This event provides an excellent opportunity to present work and receive feedback from senior researchers and policy makers in the province, and to discuss career, methods, and policy topics with students, academics, and health system policy and decision makers. 

Diverse perspectives are valued, and our goal is to create an inclusive and respectful conference environment. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to attend and welcome abstract submissions from health systems, policy, and economics research areas.

All papers are pre-circulated and discussed in 45-minute sessions using discussants rather than author presentations.

AHESG attendees are offered the following free of charge:

  • Networking event
  • All-day seminar, including keynote address
  • Lunch, and refreshments during the seminar
  • Hotel accommodations (1 night)
  • Round trip charter bus from Edmonton to Calgary for attendees travelling from Edmonton.
