According to a press release, the fellowship is “designed to bridge a persistent gap between health research and policy analysis.”
“I sought out the NPC/Duke-Margolis Health Policy Fellowship to understand where and how to affect change in policies in each of these issues,” Freed said in a statement. “At a high level, I recognize the tradeoffs between the interests of health care providers, federal agencies, legislators, and health insurance providers. I am seeking a deeper understanding of how to address these tradeoffs to increase efficacy and equity in the health care system. Adding this to my skill set with my current experience with health economics and data analysis would help me to ensure my research can inform policy and patient care.”
