Register now and submit your abstracts for HESG Winter 2019

The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York is delighted to be hosting the Health Economists’ Study Group 2019 Winter meeting from the 7th –9th January. Those interested in attending the meeting can now register through the conference website:

The HESG Winter Meeting will take place at the Principal York Hotel, next to the railway station and only a few minutes’ walk away from York’s historic centre. The conference dinner will be held on the second night at the historic Merchant Adventurers Hall.

Participants can take part in a pre-conference short course on ‘Data visualization and econometrics’ taught by Professor Andrew Jones (Monday 7th January, 9:30am – 12:30pm). For more information please visit the conference website.

As part of the meeting, the University of York will host an event in tribute to Professor Alan Maynard, who sadly passed away in February 2018. Alan is greatly missed by his friends and family, generations of health economists he taught and those whose work he influenced both through his clear thinking based on sound economic principles and his mischievous sense of humour. The plenary discussion at the York HESG meeting is dedicated to Alan and will bring together policy makers and academics to discuss ‘how health economics can have more impact on policy’.
