About the event:

This event has been postponed due to the current situation with COVID-19

Statistics are integral to the strong advances made in Public Health. Many challenges remain in producing relevant population health statistics and interpreting outcomes, in order to improve and progress evidence-based intervention and decision-making. Our event, hosted by the RSS South Wales Local Group, will share knowledge and skills for addressing some of these challenges through talks by experts. Statistics do not make their contributions in isolation and so our event aims to bring together anyone with an interest in public health; including statisticians, data scientists, policymakers, researchers, and health professionals. Following the talks, there will be opportunity for networking, with light refreshments provided.


Speakers: 
Professor Ann John, Swansea University Medical School - How do my feelings become numbers?
