West Michigan Healthcare Economic Forecast
The Office of the Vice Provost for Health commissions the report, Health Check: Analyzing Trends in West Michigan. The report focuses on health-related trends, costs and employment projections in the West Michigan area and is released each January at the West Michigan Healthcare Economic Forecast event held at Grand Valley's Eberhard Center in Grand Rapids. The study is conducted by economics faculty from Tulane University and the GVSU Seidman College of Business.
Each year, the event is complemented by a panel of experts, which might include health administrators/practitioners, government officials or industry representatives. Audiences have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session following the panel presentations.
