Professor Joseph Newhouse Honored as Founding Editor of the Journal of Health Economics

June 20, 2007

Joseph Newhouse, Kennedy School professor of health policy and management, was honored at a recent symposium of the Journal of Health Economics. Newhouse was recognized as the founding editor as the Journal celebrated its 25th anniversary.

At the symposium, five new research papers were presented by health economists from Boston University, Harvard University, MIT, University of Chicago and Tel Aviv University. These papers touched on areas of health economics and health policy in which Newhouse has made important contributions through his own research. Papers from the symposium are expected to be published in the commemorative issue of the Journal.

In addition to his faculty appointment at the Kennedy School, Newhouse chairs the Committee on Higher Degrees in Health Policy, which administers the PhD program in Health Policy at Harvard.
