The Center for Health Economics and Policy holds meetings of the Collaborative of Health Economics and Policy Analysis Researchers, or CHEPAR, every 6-8 weeks. The purpose of the group is to facilitate research in the areas of health economics and policy by Washington University investigators. Join us for the following at an upcoming CHEPAR meeting:

  • A featured presentation on health economics and policy research.
  • Two or three 15-minute presentations for attendees to present research in various stages of development, in order to receive feedback from Washington University faculty such as Center Co-Directors Tim McBride, PhD, and Bill Peck, MD; Faculty Lead for Data and Methods Abby Barker, PhD; and Center Affiliates Derek Brown PhD and Karen Joynt Maddox MD; as well as others in attendance.
  • Updates on available technical assistance through the Center for Health Economics and Policy (CHEP).
  • Updates on funding opportunities, available datasets and toolkits, and more.

Please email  or contact Leah Kemper at 314-935-3514 or in order to reserve a 15-minute spot on the calendar to present your research, research ideas or grant applications at this meeting.
