Course in crunching that health data
September 27th, 2005 by JTJ

Profs. David Kleinbaum and Nancy Barker will present their
online short course “Analysis of Epidemiologic Data” Oct.
14 – Nov. 11 at  Topics covered in the
course include: simple analysis of 2×2 tables, control of
extraneous variables (including an introduction to logistic
regression), stratified analysis, and matching.

David Kleinbaum, a professor at Emory University's Rollins
School of Public Health, is internationally known for his
textbooks in statistical and epidemiologic methods and as
an outstanding teacher.  He is the author of “ActiveEpi”
and “Epidemiologic Research- Principles and Quantitative
Methods” and has also taught over 150 short courses over
the past 30 years throughout the world.

Nancy Barker is a consulting biostatistician and a co-

years of experience teaching short courses in epidemiology
and biostatistics at Emory University and the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.

set hours when you must be online, and you can interact
with the instructor over a period of 4 weeks via a private
discussion board.  We estimate you will need about 10 hours
per week.
