Health Economics Speaker Series

Article — November 14, 2014

Presented by the Monieson Centre since 2013, the Series brings dynamic health economics scholars from top-flight universities to present their work to Queen's faculty and students. One of the key goals is to generate discussion in the Queen's academic community about interdisciplinary opportunities to collaborate across faculties and schools. This could include new curriculum, studies, funding opportunities and research questions to advance Queen's contributions to the growing field of health economics.
