Event description

Description


The Health Economics & Policy Analysis Centre (HEPAC), in conjunction with the School of Business & Economics at NUI Galway, invite you to attend a celebratory symposium to mark the success of the first ten years of our MSc in Health Economics programme. This event has principally been organised to enable us to express our sincere gratitude to all the students, staff, colleagues and placement agencies, whose valuable contributions have been so central to the growth and development of the programme over the past ten years. The event also marks the beginning of the next phase and we at NUI Galway are excited about continuing to improve and evolve the MSc in Health Economics programme so to ensure that our students are equipped to meet the ever-changing needs of the market place. Indeed, we hope we will be able to continue to call on your support, as we will surely need to, in our endeavours to achieve this goal.

For this special occasion, HEPAC are privileged to welcome Professor John Mullahy from the University of Wisconsin, and Honorary Professor of Economics at NUI Galway, to deliver a guest lecture entitled: ‘Health Economics: A personal view on the state of the discipline’. In asking Professor Mullahy to speak on this particular topic, we have no doubt that he will provide us all, as members of the health economics community in Ireland and internationally, with expertly informed insights on the current state of play as regards the discipline of health economics and on where it is likely to proceed in the future. The lecture will be followed by a cheese and wine reception in ILAS from 8pm to 9pm. We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us at NUI Galway for this special event to celebrate how far we have come in the past ten years and to mark the beginning of where we need to go from this point onwards.

The event is scheduled to take place on Friday 7th June in the Institute for Lifecourse and Society (ILAS), NUI Galway and the itinerary is as follows:

6:00pm: Guests arrive in the lobby at ILAS

6.30pm: Welcoming address from NUI Galway
