Health Outcomes Seminar Series
This seminar series is presented by the UIC REACH (Research Education and Careers in Health) Program and the UIC Center for Pharmacoeconomic Research. It is usually held on the third Thursday of the month, unless otherwise noted. Seminar topics address issues of current interest in health policy and outcomes research. Past presentations have included comparative effectiveness research, effects of minimum wage on obesity, and improving quality of prenatal care for low-income women. The Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 schedules are available.
Works-In-Progress Seminar Series
During this seminar series, MS CTS Degree Program present their current research activities at an initial research session as part of their mentored research hours. In addition, students in related programs, such as the TL1 PECTS, the KL2 Scholars and BIRCWH, are invited to participate. The series provides a true interdisciplinary opportunity for trainees in these programs, who are at quite different stages in their professional development and from different disciplines, to both provide and receive critiques of their research ideas. We regard this workshop as an important component in the development of an interdisciplinary mentoring community. Click here for past schedule of Works in Progress Seminars.

The symposium was followed by the CCTS Fall 2010 Distinguished Lecture, "Evidence-Based Transformation: Keeping the Patient at the Center of Care", with Carolyn Clancy, MD, Director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. You can view the symposium's slide presentations here (netid required). You can also view Dr. Clancy's slide presentation here.
