Population Health Science Research Workshop 2018

8 a.m.—6 p.m. October 12, 2018
Live stream registration open late summer.

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Population Health Science Research Workshop (PHS2018), to be held at Boston University School of Public Health. The workshop is designed to bring together scholars from economics, epidemiology, demography, and related disciplines to present papers on topics related to population health. The workshop will prioritize rigorous empirical work on the methodological or content frontiers of population health research. (Theoretical work is acceptable but should be linked to an empirical application.) The workshop is designed to identify and push the cutting edge in population health science. See PHS2016 and PHS2017 workshop programs for examples.

This intimate workshop will run one full day with no concurrent sessions, to enable in-depth discussion of the presented work. We anticipate 9 oral paper presentations, 9 invited discussants, and a poster session with 25 presenters. 40 minutes will be allocated to each paper to be orally presented and discussed. Papers not accepted for oral presentations will be considered for the poster session. Invited discussants will reflect on the oral presentations, contextualizing the paper within related scholarship from other disciplines. To ensure an atmosphere conducive to discussion, in-person meeting participation will be limited to presenters and discussants. Everyone is welcome to join in here on the PHX site for a live stream of the workshop. Live stream registration will open later this summer.

Please email us at pophlth@bu.edu with any questions.

Co-sponsored with the Boston University Global Development Policy (GDP) Center.
