The American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon), the Health Economics Research Organization (HERO), and the International Health Economics Association (iHEA) are soliciting papers for presentation at the 2019 Allied Social Science Association (ASSA) annual meeting to be held in Atlanta, GA from January 4-6, 2019 (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday). Based upon submitted abstracts, papers will be selected for 1 ASHEcon-organized session, 5 HERO-organized sessions, and 2 iHEA-organized sessions.
ASHEcon seeks abstracts on topics related to US-focused health economics topics, HERO seeks abstracts on all issues of relevance to the health economics field, and iHEA seeks abstracts for sessions that will focus primarily on internationally relevant topics in health economics.
Anyone is eligible to submit an abstract. Abstract text must be 500 words or less.
If you would like to submit your abstract as part of a group of abstracts for consideration as a complete session, please note the other abstracts in the Notes section and provide suggested discussants for each paper. Please note that this is not a guarantee that all papers in a set would necessarily be on the program.
Please submit abstracts by May 1. Submit your abstract now.
