MGH Health Policy Rounds

MGH Health Policy Rounds were started in 2018 to bring health policy makers and policy researchers together.  We cover a wide range of topics where science can inform policy, and policy can inform science. Slides from past talks are linked here if speakers have made them available.

Rounds are convened by Dr. Karen Donelan, a Senior Scientist and Associate Professor in the Health Policy Research Center of The Mongan Institute.  HPRC Faculty help identify and invite speakers and serve as discussants in the series.  SIGN UP for our mailing list by emailing us at HPRC@mgh.harvard.edu
