The Social and Health Statistics Seminars, co-sponsored by the Center for Health Statistics, Zuckerberg College of Health Sciences, and College of Fine Arts, Humanities, & Social Sciences, will continue on Feb. 15, 2023. Please mark your calendars.

The goal of the seminar series is for faculty, research staff (e.g., biostatisticians, statisticians, or data analysts), and senior doctoral students to share and get feedback on their research projects and discuss how their expertise could contribute to rethinking and shaping other research areas. This year, we have 7 internal and 5 external speakers. Both our internal and external speakers are outstanding researchers. The topics cover a wide range of statistical applications in social and health sciences research.

Please join us. RSVP
