Health Economics @ Cambridge is the network for everyone interested in health, economics or the prioritization of health care resources.
Health economics in Cambridge is growing. This is a network open to all those interested in health and economics in any capacity across the greater Cambridge area. It includes health economists, epidemiologists, statisticians, health services researchers, clinicians and those simply with an interest in the economics of health and health care.
Traditionally, health economic research in Cambridge has been undertaken by many different actors. Health Economics @ Cambridge (HE@Cam) was created to bring together everyone in the field into one network. We welcome anyone with ties to the Cambridge area who is working with, or simply interested in, health economics in a broad sense.
We currently meet twice a term for seminars which also provide an opportunity to present suggestions for future work or work in progress, foster new collaborations with colleagues across the university, and gain critical appraisal of new ideas. The network is coordinated by Ed Wilson (Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research and Cambridge Clinical Trials Unit) and David Wästlund (Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research).
