Two More CHAS Fellows Named

CHAS is pleased to announce the following University of Chicago faculty have been named CHAS Fellows, based on their contributions to health policy and services research:

  • Daniel Adelman, PhD, MSc
    Booth School of Business
  • Brian Callender, MD, MA
    Section of Hospital Medicine, Dept. of Medicine

CHAS at the University of Chicago Center in Paris

On May 26-27, 2016, the Center for Health Administration Studies will be co-hosting, with the Sciences Po Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP), a multi-day conference in Paris, France at the University of Chicago’s Center in Paris campus.  The Sciences Po-University of Chicago Workshop on Health Policy Innovation and Reform conference will bring together health policy researchers and scholars from the U.S. and France to share their most recent work in a deliberately comparative and collaborative context. The underlying assumption is that there are sizeable potential gains in knowledge growth and policy innovation that can result from such a systematic, scientific exchange of ideas.  Research and evaluation in both countries has contributed to reforms in health and social service policy.  The process by which social science research and evaluation influences health policy innovation and reform will be the focus of the conference.

CHAS will to provide conference media and summary outcomes in future eNews editions and on the CHAS website.

Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health (P4A) was created to help build an evidence base for policies that can lead to a Culture of Health. P4A seeks to engage long-standing health and health care researchers, as well as experts in fields like housing, education, transportation, and the built environment, to name a few, who have not worked in health before. The goal is to develop research that generates actionable evidence-the data and information that can guide legislators and other policymakers, public agencies, educators, advocates, community groups, and individuals.
