Collaborative Cancer Health Economics Research Workshop (Overview)


The 2nd Collaborative Cancer Health Economics Research Conference will be held virtually on September 26 – 27, 2023.

Cancer has substantial economic consequences to patients and their families, health care systems, employers, and society overall.  In May 2023, NCI hosted a conference organized by the Interagency Consortium to Promote Health Economics Research on Cancer (HEROiC) that brought together stakeholders from government agencies and non-profit professional, patient advocacy, and payer organizations in the U.S. to discuss areas of shared interest in cancer health economics research and identify collaboration opportunities. 

As a next step, the second conference will involve stakeholders from non-profit cancer centers and academic institutions to further identify areas of shared research interest and collaboration. Through HEROiC, NCI is uniquely positioned to bring together these stakeholders and further these critical activities.


If you require special arrangements or accommodations to fully participate in this meeting, please contact ICF at, with HEROiC Event in the subject line, at least 7 business days before the meeting to discuss your needs.
