Health Economics Collaboration Seminar Series

Economists from the Sydney School of Public Health participate in the Health Economics Collaboration (HEC), a network of economists based at Universities within NSW. HEC currently includes economists from the Sydney School of Public Health, University of Sydney, George Institute for International Health and the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, University of NSW. HEC hosts seminars and runs workshops and short courses to foster the exchange of ideas between Health Economists and increase awareness about the field of Health Economics.

The seminar series for 2012 is under review and will be updated in the coming weeks.
