Mt Hood 2020 Diabetes Challenge

  16-18 June 2020
Chicago, USA
Due to Covid-19 and travel restrictions-  we will postpone the Chicago meeting. We have suspended registrations and provide updates on a future meeting in due course.  

The next Mount Hood challenge meeting will be hosted by the Center for Chronic Disease Research and Policy (CDRP) immediately after the American Diabetes Association 80th Scientific Sessions. The aim of this meeting is to promote the use of health economics and diabetes simulation models. A focus of the meeting will be on modelling future costs and using simulation models to inform economic evaluations. The conference will take place in the Saieh Hall for Economics on the University of Chicago Campus.

The meeting will include a combination of:

  • set challenges undertaken by groups who have developed simulation models;

  • plenary lectures (by Dr. Jacqueline Shreibati, Research Scientist at Google Health and Prof Joel Hay, University of Southern California).

  • presentations by groups building diabetes simulation models, or undertaking related health economic work;  

The conference will include a combination of challenge sessions and more traditional conference presentations, as well as a conference dinner. This meeting will include a special celebration to mark the 20th anniversary of the first Mt Hood Diabetes Challenge meeting.

There will be a half-day masterclass on diabetes simulation modelling on the afternoon of 16 June.
