Lawrenceville, NJ, USA—April 25, 2022—ISPOR—The Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research announced that its annual international conference, ISPOR 2022, is offering a Real-World Evidence Subprogram. ISPOR 2022 is being held May 15-18 with registration options that include in-person attendance in Washington, DC, USA or virtual attendance from anywhere in the world.
The ISPOR 2022 Real-World Evidence Subprogram is a “conference within a conference” for delegates who want an intensive experience of real-world evidence (RWE) content.
