Health Policy Workshop

In-person: Dartmouth faculty and staff
The Dartmouth Institute's Health Policy Workshops encourage faculty members and staff with a common interest in a particular policy issue to engage in a research-based policy discussions. These sessions bring a variety of disciplinary perspectives to focus on a particular problem and foster a broader understanding of the theoretical and methodological issues involved in understanding the problem.These sessions are not broadcast online. In-person attendance is limited to Dartmouth Institute faculty and staff.

TDI Research in Progress Forum

The purpose of the Research in Progress Forum is to serve as a seminar where researchers can gather to discuss, collaborate, and learn from each other about on-going work. Presenters will vary from junior to senior faculty to staff and will include invited speakers from time to time. Content will also vary from research early in development to research nearing completion to overviews of ongoing work by theme area.  The series will generally be held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays at noontime, with an occasional change to accommodate extraordinary scheduling demands.
