Center for Health Economics Research


The Center for Health Economics Research (CHER) was established by the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI in response to the pressing need for research on health, health care, and health insurance.  The Center brings together researchers across the campus and the state with interests in any area of health and health care which can be informed by economics or with implications for economic outcomes.  CHER researchers have a diverse set of interests and expertise, ranging from health insurance and health care cost growth to competition in health care markets to health-related quality of life.  The Center also plays a local role in linking IUPUI to the community through shared interests in health care and research partnerships in collaboration with medical, business and government entities.  In addition, the CHER is linked to and supportive of the Economics Ph.D. program with a specialization in Health Economics.


CHER was happy to host the IUPUI-IUB Mini-Conference at Bradford Woods on April 4th 2014.  The Mini-Confrence featured presentations by IUPUI and IUB faculty and Ph.D Students.  In total approximately 20 faculty and students attended. Agenda
