This program explored the evolution of data science in the context of public health. What statistical methods are used to shape and inform population health research? Where is the field heading in the next decade and what methodological improvements can we make to strengthen public health research, analysis, and recommendations?

This event was cohosted with the BUSPH Population Health Data Science Program and the Boston University Faculty of Computing and Data Science.
