The Health Economics Common Fund Program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has supported research to understand how innovations in treatments, diagnosis, and preventive strategies can be most effectively deployed to improve health and well-being. Research supported by this program identifies factors determining adoption of effective health technologies, innovations, and discoveries, so that past and future investments by NIH may have greater public health impact. 

In recognition of its last year, the Health Economics Common Fund Program sponsored a research symposium titled Turning Discovery into Health: The Contributions of Economic Research on September 28-29, 2017 on the NIH Main Campus. The goals of this program-culminating event were to highlight results from Common Fund supported projects and to stimulate ideas for future contributions of economic research to the NIH and Institute-specific missions.

A recording of the proceedings is now available on the NIH Videocast website under "Past Events." There are thumbnails marking each panel and speaker for easy navigation within the recording. The day 1 and day 2 recordings are separate. Please feel free to share widely with your colleagues and networks. Direct links to the recordings will also be posted on the NIH Health Economics Common Fund website.
