Over the three days that LDI hosted the 6th Biennial Conference of the American Society of Health Economists (June 12 - 15, 2016) we asked a few presenters to blog about their work, and their posts appear below.  The authors were among the 1,000 health economists who gathered in Philadelphia to deliver more than 500 presentations and display more than 250 posters about the field's latest research.
