CEVR Welcomes 2024 CEA Registry Summer Fellows

CEVR is thrilled to introduce the 2024 cohort of the Tufts-CEVR CEA Registry Summer Fellowship program, which is supported by the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation.

Over the next eight weeks, six talented students from graduate programs around the country will review hundreds of cost-effectiveness analyses (CEAs) for CEVR’s CEA Registry while conducting original health policy research of their own.

To get to know the fellows better, we asked them about their research interests, career aspirations, favorite pastimes, and unique experiences. We have shared some of their responses below.
