Jed Blore, Global Engagement Officer, will give the talk “Population health: past, present, and future – The Global Burden of Disease Study and the Center for Health Trends and Forecasts” at the Population Association of America 2016 Annual Meeting.

Center for Health Trends and Forecasts membership

Funded by the National Institute on Aging and housed at IHME, the Center for Health Trends and Forecasts aims to foster innovative social science research by using data from a variety of disciplines alongside Global Burden of Disease findings.

We welcome interested researchers to join the Center for Health Trends and Forecasts as members. CHTF looks forward to undertaking and promoting innovative work with a robust network of researchers who wish to exchange ideas, work in tandem on projects, and engage in multidisciplinary learning. We hope that this network expands beyond traditional public health to a wide range of social science fields.

Membership is free and offers many benefits. The center will provide members with opportunities to publish and disseminate research, collaborate with other members, learn about Global Burden of Disease data and how to access data for analyses, and gain information about additional funding and publication and presentation opportunities as they arise.

We hope that you and your colleagues will participate as members of the Center for Health Trends and Forecasts. For more information and to indicate your interest in becoming a member, please stop by the IHME exhibit at PAA or visit
