So You Think Your Data are Messy? Estimating the Effect when Things Get Complicated

Date: Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Location: NURS 502A
Presenter: Heather M. Bush, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Biostatistics, College of Public Health

Data plays an essential role in tackling some of the toughest public health problems – problems that are multi-faceted and complex. With more data available, it can feel like there are even more problems to solve. Biostatisticians have a unique role to play in the solution, but too often we are not actively engaged in research partnerships. Using examples from women’s health and violence prevention, the challenges of estimating “the effect” will be described and used to demonstrate the need for biostatisticians to take a seat at the team science table.

Lunch will be served.  Please RSVP to Becki Flanagan no later than Tuesday, June 12.
