    Dear all,

    INFORMS Annual meeting is just around the corner. The Health Applications Society (HAS) has organized more than 60 sessions on many exciting topics. Below we want to highlight a few special sessions, including distinguished lectures, special panels, award sessions, and a phd job candidate flash session. All times are in PDT. Live sessions will not be recorded. We hope you will attend.

    Sunday, 10/24

    • 7:45-9:15AM VSB09 (Live). Distinguished Lectures: COVID - production, supply chain, analytics (Featuring Prashant Yadav and David Simchi-Levi) Our distinguished speakers with discuss research and impact for operations research, logistics, production, and analytics in the COVID-19 response directly and for disaster preparedness more broadly.

    • 7:45-9:15 AM VMB09 (Live). Panel: Communicating with Stakeholders in Health to Make an Impact. Hope to make larger impact with your research? In this panel, instead of hearing technical talks, you will hear from a few researchers in our field who have communicated extensively with various stakeholders (including industry, media, and government agencies) about their research. They will share their experiences and suggestions on communicating more intentionally and powerfully with stakeholders outside our academic world to make a difference.
    • 11:00-12:30 VMC09. 2021 Pierskalla Award Session
    • 2:45-4:15 PM VMD09. Bonder Scholars Session
    Tuesday, 10/26
    • 6:00-7:30 AM VTA79 (Live). Panel: Health in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) Healthcare delivery challenges (demand) and infrastructure (supply) vary across countries. Differences in human, physical, financial, and institutional frameworks mean a different approach may be beneficial. Panelists share their experiences about healthcare operation strategy, capacity development and operations in LMICs. They discuss observations relevant to those working in higher income countries and perspectives of innovation and engagement rather than pushing of solutions to LMIC.
    Hope to see you there.
