Mendlowitz, Andrew University of Toronto Trainee – PhD Andrew’s research interests are focused on methodologies relating to economic evaluations, decision analytical modelling and health technology assessment. For his thesis, Andrew is working in partnership with First Nations community organizations to estimate the health and economic impacts of hepatitis C infection among First Nations populations in Ontario. His work is focused on generating evidence to inform economic evaluations of novel hepatitis C screening and treatment approaches. His research will be useful for the creation of policy and community action to combat hepatitis C infection.
