Biostatistics Department Special Events to Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of School of Public Health
Biostatistics Department Special Events to Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the School of Public Health.
September 22 - 23, 2016
Michigan Campus, Ann Arbor
The University of Michigan School of Public Health celebrates its 75th Anniversary in the 2016-17 academic year. As part of the celebration, each department in the school has been assigned a month during that academic year to stage special events that mark the anniversary. September 2016 is the month for the Biostatistics Department, and the Department is organizing an event "A Biostatistics Symposium to Celebrate UMSPH 75" on September 22-23, 2016. The event will feature a biostatistics seminar by Joel Greenhouse of Carnegie Mellon University on September 22 at 4pm, followed by a reception and banquet in the evening; and two seminars on the afternoon of September 23, an inaugural Distinguished Alumni Lecture by Joel Greenhouse, and a Special Distinguished Lecture by Mitchell Gail of NIH. The latter talks will have themes associated with the history of biostatistics, and will be aimed at a broad public health audience. Following these talks there will be a round-table panel of current and previous UM Biostatistics Department Chairs on the past, present and future of Biostatistics, and a strolling reception featuring Biostatistics student posters.
The event is open to all, and we particularly encourage departmental alumni (student, staff and faculty), current members of the department and school of public health, collaborators and other friends and supporters of the department to attend.
Registration is complimentary for the seminar and poster session, and $60 (or $30 for current students) for the banquet (which is rumored to include some form of entertainment). Space is limited, so register early to ensure a spot at what promises to be an exciting, enjoyable and informative event.
