APPAM/ASHEcon Webinar: The Intersection of Opioid Addiction and Evidence-Based Policy

With over a thousand people dying each week due to opioid related overdoses, many have suggested evidence-based policy as a way to combat the epidemic. Join ASHEcon and APPAM experts on health policy and opioids as they take a deep-dive into the opioid crisis, how to use evidence-based policy to combat it, and what health economists can do to influence policy.

Evidence-Based Policymaking at #2017APPAM

October 4, 2017 11:14 AM

The APPAM Fall Research Conference has long been the place to learn what’s going on in the world of evidence-based research. With the publication of the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking Report last month, we wanted to highlight the conference sessions that will touch on issues raised by this important report.

The theme of the conference this year is Measurement Matters: Better Data for Better Decisions. We understand the utilization of evidence-based research and strategies for policy making is more important than ever.

As you plan your time at the conference by browsing the agenda, be sure to keep an eye out for these sessions. We’ll see you in Chicago for #2017APPAM!
