The Hopkins Health, Labor, Education and Development Economics Conference (H2LED) is organized by three schools: the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Carey Business School, and the Economics Department at KSAS.

The aim of the conference is to bring together academic economists from different divisions around Johns Hopkins University, open lines of communication, foster collaboration across schools and showcase the diverse research that Hopkins economists work on.

Presentations will not only showcase cutting-edge economic research, but also highlight the diverse sets of methods and approaches used by economists to answer vital research questions to generate research that may one day help to shape education, health, development and labor policy.

To broaden the appeal, and encourage economists to speak to a broader audience and incorporate insights from other disciplines, discussants (likewise Hopkins faculty members) are not economists.

The event will be hosted at the JHU Carey Business School, located at 100 International Drive, Baltimore, MD.
