HERG Virtual Research Seminar

The Virtual Research Seminar Series is an initiative led by PhD students. The aim is to provide web-based meetings for doctoral researchers in health economics. Presentations are invited on work-in-progress from PhD students conducting research with a focus on health economics. This is a distinctive opportunity to interact with colleagues with no travel time or costs. The meetings will encourage high quality, and positive academic feedback, and create opportunities for developing new and lasting collaborations.

The next HERG Virtual Research Seminar is at 14.00 GMT on 9th September 2011.  The first speaker is Chris Skedgel who is a PhD student within HEDS.  He is presenting on ‘Discrete choice versus constant sum paired comparisons for eliciting societal preferences for healthcare resource allocation.  The second speaker is Edward Kendall who is a PhD student at UCL and is presenting on ‘Methodological issues with area-level inequality measurement using panel data’.
