AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM), June 28-30 in Chicago, convenes more than 2300 researchers, policymakers and practitioners to discuss research addressing the critical challenges confronting the nation's health care delivery system, including the ways health services research can inform current federal and state efforts to improve health care quality, reduce rising costs and expand access.
This year's meeting, held at the Hilton Chicago, focuses on the need for better research translation and making connections between the research community and key decision makers in health care reform efforts. Keynote speaker Dr. Julio Frenk opens the conference on Sunday morning with his address, "Moving from Research to Policy in Health System Reform." Dr. Frenk is the dean of the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and former minister of health of Mexico.
The ARM is the premier forum for health services research and the largest gathering of both experts and newcomers in the field. The meeting offers diverse research on more than 21 distinct areas of health services research and policy. More than half of the program is selected through blind peer-review.
