Meet the Researchers at AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting

By Elizabeth Zimmermann Young

If you’re heading to New Orleans for AcademyHealth’s Annual Research Meeting (ARM), AcademyHealth says it’s a great opportunity to:

  • Learn about the latest emerging evidence.
  • Discover new methods and applications of rigorous and relevant methods.
  • Identify gaps and opportunities in research.
  • Enhance your understanding of the most pressing research policy issues.
  • Connect with peers, expand your community, and identify new collaborators.

We hope that you will do exactly that, and especially take the time to check out what Mayo Clinic is doing across the entire discovery, translation and application continuum as we build the evidence base in health care delivery research.

At the booth from the Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, not only will you find more information about Mayo Clinic research, education and career opportunities, but you’ll have a chance to meet some of our researchers.
