Keep Growing Your Network

February 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST


We are pleased to announce that the Economics of Children’s Health and Wellbeing (E-CHW) IHEA Special Interest Group is hosting a second online workshop on networking for Early Career Researchers (ECRs). This workshop aims to foster new networks between senior scholars and ECRs working in child health and provide a forum where ECRs could discuss and learn from experienced scholars how networking helped them navigate the early phases of their careers.

The online workshop will be held on February 2nd 2023 at 12-2 pm (EST).

This online workshop particularly invites interested ECRs working on child health to participate in the workshop. In the event, ECR participants will introduce their work in max. 3 minutes, followed by 10-minute networking-related talks by the panellists and multiple speed networking sessions. Among our confirmed panellists are:

  1. Professor Lisa Prosser, University of Michigan – UNITED STATES

Her research focuses on measuring the value of childhood health interventions using methods of decision sciences and economics. Her work using decision science modelling to project long-term health outcomes for proposed newborn screening programs has been used to inform national newborn screening policy decisions. She holds an adjunct faculty appointment at the Harvard School of Public Health. She is also a convenor of the E-CHW IHEA Special Interest Group.
