Erin Strumpf, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health at McGill University. She received her Ph.D. in Health Policy and Economics from Harvard University and was a pre-doctoral fellow in Health and Aging with the National Bureau for Economic Research and the U.S. National Institute on Aging. She currently holds a Research Scholar Career Award from the Fonds de recherché du Québec – Santé and the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec. Her research in health economics focuses on the impact of health and health care policies on spending and health outcomes overall, and in disparities across groups. She has completed several research projects analyzing the impacts of policy changes on individual behavior, health care service use, and health outcomes using large databases and methods for causal inference to evaluate health interventions. She also has experience communicating research findings to policymakers, including members of the U.S. Congress and the Quebec Health and Finance Ministries. Dr. Strumpf’s current research agenda focuses on the impacts of preventive and primary care practice. In one project, she is evaluating the costs and benefits of population-based cancer screening based on U.S. and Canadian guidelines. In a second, she is measuring the health care system impacts of integrated primary care delivery in Quebec in terms of service utilization, system costs, and population health outcomes. In addition to leading these projects, she is also involved in research evaluating the impacts of population health interventions on health inequalities and in the Canadian Institute of Health Research’s Drug Safety and Effectiveness Network. Her research is primarily aligned with the CPD’s Social and Economic Determinants of Health research axis, and is also related to the Ageing axis.
