Call for Papers – Tenth Annual Midwest Health Economics Conference



Tenth Annual Midwest Health Economics Conference  

Ann Arbor, MI

May 16-17, 2019


The University of Michigan will host the Tenth Annual Midwest Health Economics Conference (MHEC-X) May 16-17, 2019. Local sponsors are the Ross School of Business and the Department of Health Management and Policy.

This annual invitational conference assembles junior and senior economists to present, debate, and discuss cutting-edge health economics research. There will be a full day of presentations on Thursday, May 16, and a half-day of presentations on Friday, May 17. We welcome submissions from all scholars regardless of location, though in selecting the program we will (slightly) favor those connected to Midwest institutions.

Abstracts (or complete papers) can be submitted via the conference website. The deadline for submissions is February 22, 2019. We will select approximately 10 papers. We will email decisions by March 15, 2019. To facilitate discussion, we ask authors to send completed papers by May 6, 2019.

MHEC charges no registration fee. The University of Michigan will provide meals; participants must pay all other expenses, including transportation and lodging. We have reserved a block of rooms near the UM campus at the Graduate Ann Arbor, which is within walking distance to the Ross School of Business, where the conference will be held. The rate on those rooms is $199 per night.

We look forward to seeing you in Ann Arbor.
