Washington, D.C. – Experts from the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and IMPAQ will present sessions at the AcademyHealth 2020 Annual Research Meeting, being held July 28 through August 6, 2020. The conference is being held online due to the coronavirus pandemic. Participants will be able to access over 70 hours of content across live virtual presentations and more than 60 on-demand panel sessions.
AcademyHealth is a professional organization that supports and serves health services researchers and policymakers, as well as health care practitioners and stakeholders. The Annual Research Meeting focuses on new research, innovative methods, and robust discussions about the effect of health services research on health policy and practice.
Presentations by AIR and IMPAQ will cover a wide array of topics, including creating innovative tools to address social determinants of health, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), improving the quality of care, social risk factors in older adults, and more. In May, AIR acquired IMPAQ, which continues to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of AIR.
