MedHealth SASE


Our History

The MedHealth Mini-Conference at the annual meeting of the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics brought together scholars working at the intersections of health, medicine, economy, and society. At our meetings in 2020, 2021 and 2022, we explored a wide range of topics, including norms of equity and inclusion in medicine, the valuation and regulation of new drugs, and the state’s role in responding to market failures in healthcare. MedHealth Mini-Conference participants come from various disciplines and fields, such as sociology, political economy, law, management, area studies, and public health. We are committed to including participants from a range of institutions, career stages, and geographic areas. In the spirit of innovation and creativity, we encourage papers that are works-in-progress and our panels are centered around discussant feedback and audience participation. Through this website, we aim to bring new scholars and practitioners to SASE, build an interdisciplinary community committed to advancing the study of the social, economic, and political dimensions of health and medicine, and recognize the scholarship of former mini-conference participants.
