April 13:  Pre-Workshop Short-course: Space Time Analysis for Health and the Environment

This 1-day class will provide instruction on the space-time analysis of data relating health events to potential sources of environmental exposures. Examples of data will include the time and place of residence of individuals with a given diagnosis, space-time paths of cases and controls over the life course, and cancer rates in local areas through time. We will focus on chronic diseases, such as cancer.

Instructor:  Geoffrey Jacquez, PhD

Suitable for:  Students, environmental and health faculty, researchers and community activists (a basic understanding of data and statistics would be useful).
