Earlier this year, Professor and Minnesota Insurance Industry Chair of Health Finance Stephen Parente accepted an invitation to serve on the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) Panel of Health Advisors. The panel, which comprises health care experts from academia, government, and the private sector, meets annually to consider emerging health care issues that have important implications for CBO’s cost estimates and analyses, and to share insights on those questions. In addition, panel members participate in phone calls and teleconferences with CBO analysts during the year.   

Parente, the Minnesota Insurance Industry Chair of Health Finance and the director of the Medical Industry Leadership Institute, will serve a two-year term on the panel.
