Stanley Wallack Distinguished Memorial Lecture

This lecture series commemorates Stanley S. Wallack,  a nationally known expert on health-policy issues and professor at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management for 36 years. An economist, professor and entrepreneur, he served as executive director and co-founder of the Schneider Institutes for Health Policy and Research at Brandeis. He taught graduate students in health economics, national health policy and health-care financing. He founded two companies: Health Data Institute, specializing in health-data analytics, and LifePlans, specializing in long-term care benefit management. Much of his research was dedicated to analyzing problems in the financing and delivery of health care, and developing innovative solutions that became the industry standard, including at health maintenance organizations and accountable-care organizations. Stanley conducted extensive research on the development of comprehensive programs for insuring long-term care. Before coming to Brandeis, he served as an economic policy fellow at the Brookings Institution, and worked for the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and the Congressional Budget Office.
