Tilford, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Joanne Spetz, University of California – San Francisco, James Burgess, Boston University
     
  2. Treatment Effect Estimation with Unconfounded Assignment, instructor: Jeff Wooldridge. We will cover the potential outcomes approach to estimating treatment effects, with a discussion of regression, propensity score, matching, and combinations of these methods. We will also discuss problems of overlap and how to determine if unconfoundedness is a reasonable assumption.
     
  3. NIH Funding Workshop: Learn about the grant process and strategies for success from several NIH project officers.
     
  4. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality: Research Databases for Health Economics Research: This half-day workshop will provide an introduction to the research databases at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).  In particular, the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) and the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) will be described with specific applications to health economics research. 

Student Mentoring Breakfast

Tuesday June 14, 7-8:15am, no charge

Once again, ASHEcon will be offering a mentoring breakfast geared toward graduate students and post-docs as part of our 2016 biennial conference. Senior economists will interact with students through semi-structured “speed-mentoring” meetings to answer questions on topics such as publishing, teaching, grant writing, networking, job search, career paths, and the tenure process. A light continental breakfast will be provided. Space will be limited to the first 50 respondents and pre-registration is required.
