Assistant professor's presentation detailing her research expected to boost world-wide collaboration for MU community
Sawhney will give her presentation at the ninth International Health Economics Association (iHEA) World Congress from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday, July 8, in Sydney, Australia.
"I am very excited to see what other researchers have been working on in the area of health economics," Sawhney said. "This opens many doors for the Marshall community to be able to collaborate with scholars around the world on future research initiatives."
"My research involves the basic principle of efficiency," Sawhney said. "We have so many economic challenges all over the world. In order to be efficient, we have to implement the best health care practices. One of the ways to do this is to make efficient use of available resources."
Sawhney is director of the Public Health program at Marshall. She said this is a very timely topic for not only developing countries such as India, but for nations across the globe as well as states within the U.S., especially West Virginia.
"Many national and local governments - both in the developing and developed world - are faced with the possibility of a decline in resources for health and other social sectors," Sawhney said. "This conference will provide an opportunity to be exposed to cutting-edge research that can help policymakers implement strategies that encourage high levels of efficiency."
Tom Getzen, iHEA executive director, said more than 1,000 researchers representing more than 60 countries will attend the event.
"This is a large forum where like-minded people can present their ideas and connect with one another on a global front," Getzen said. "This is a great way for researchers to get feedback on their methodology and meet others interested in the field of health economics. Those attending this conference have presented work that meets an international standard."
Sawhney said she is thrilled to be given an opportunity to share her knowledge with others in her field.
