2019 Washington, DC

NW Washington DC Hotels

The American Society of Health Economists will hold their 8th Annual Conference in Washington, DC at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel on June 23-26, 2019.

The American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon) is a professional organization dedicated to promoting excellence in health economics research in the U.S. Health economics has emerged as a distinct and successful field in economics — a large community of researchers bringing theoretical and empirical insights based on the discipline of economics to policy-relevant issues in health care costs, outcomes, health behavior and health care delivery. Since its first conference, hosted at the University of Wisconsin in 2006, ASHEcon’s meeting has quickly become the premier health economics conference in the U.S., providing a forum for presenting emerging ideas, empirical results, and methodological advances in health economics research and for facilitating the development of the next generation of health economics scholars.

The theme of this year’s conference is the Crossroads of Public Policy and Health Economics and aims to provide a forum for emerging ideas and empirical results of current health economics research to be showcased and discussed.


Registration for the 2019 ASHEcon Conference is now open.

Hotel & Travel Information

The conference will be held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington,DC. Ideally located in Northwest DC’s Woodley Park neighborhood, the Washington Marriott Wardman Park offers the best of both worlds. The hotel, which celebrates its 100th year in 2018, provides a quiet respite in the heart of the city with 16 acres of manicured gardens. However, the Marriott’s proximity to the Metro allows you to visit bustling downtown DC with all its attractions. Just a few steps away, the trendy stores and global cuisine of Adams Morgan and the exhilarating nightlife of Dupont Circle are waiting to be discovered.  ASHEcon has secured a discounted room rate of $254/night + taxes and fees.
