Pre-Congress Session Proposals

Pre-Congress Sessions will take place on Friday, July 7th and Saturday July 8th (before the evening opening plenary) on the Boston University Main Campus in the rooms where the World Congress will be held. Proposals for pre-congress sessions can be submitted until December 20, 2016

These sessions provide an opportunity to take advantage of health economists coming together from around the world. The content of these sessions are fully organized and coordinated by the person or organization submitting the proposal, but should be related to health economics issues. Sessions may be open or closed depending on the nature of the meeting, but the majority will be open for congress delegates to join freely.

All pre-congress session rooms will be set in a fixed tier lecture style with a computer, data projector, and screen.
