Margolis Seminars aim to foster an open exchange of policy-relevant ideas, research, and developments. We envision most seminars will be informal, free-flowing discussions. The goal is to connect us together as a community, and to help people form, develop, and shape their work on topics related to health policy. Most seminars will have two main topics, which can be either Research in Progress or Policy Analysis in Progress (we hope for an overall balance of these two), as well as a n opportunity for “quick hits” – when anyone in attendance can start a quick conversation with the group.Some seminars may be complete presentations by faculty, staff, and students, as well as visitors, on significant new research or perspectives on health policy and management. PowerPoint presentations and handouts are optional for these presentations, and they should be informal - e.g., preliminary tables or figures, a draft survey instrument, etc. We would like to receive these materials by early morning of the seminar so we can circulate in advance to participants.

If you have an idea that you would like to present, however early-stage, please email Gillian ( and Hilary ( They will work to accommodate as many people as possible, as soon as possible.
