The NBER Center for Aging and Health, which is supported by the National Institute on Aging, will host the fourth virtual conference in its series on "COVID-19 and Health Outcomes" on Thursday November 18, 2021, from 2:30pm to 5:00pm EDT. The conference, which will be organized by Maria Polyakova (Stanford University and NBER) and Kosali Simon (Indiana University and NBER), will showcase a range of new research studies that analyze various health impacts of COVID-19. Studies examining the mortality and health impact of the pandemic across racial, ethnic, and income groups, the mental health consequences of the pandemic, and the impact of COVID-19-related declines in economic activity on health outcomes are of particular interest, but submissions of research on other related topics are also welcome. Papers by early career scholars, by researchers with and without NBER affiliations, and by researchers from under-represented groups are particularly welcome.
The conference will include completed paper presentations as well as an opportunity to showcase work in progress. Submissions should consist of (at least largely) completed papers.
Authors should upload submissions to:
by midnight EDT on Friday, October 15, 2021. Please do not submit research that will be published by mid-November. The program will be announced in early November. The meeting will be held virtually on Zoom, and will also be live-streamed on YouTube. Please direct questions about this meeting to Rob Shannon at the NBER conference department, email@example.com.
The NBER Center on Aging and Health is co-directed by Anne Case (Princeton University) and David Cutler (Harvard University).
