Statistics Without Borders Business Meeting at JSM

1 July 2011 No Comment

Statistics Without Borders (SWB), an ASA outreach group, is planning its annual business meeting during JSM in Miami Beach, Florida. The meeting will be held on August 2 at 4:30 p.m. in the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, American Salon 3. All SWB members are invited to attend, as well as anyone who would like to learn more about the group.

SWB was established in 2008 and provides a focus for pro bono statistical consulting and an opportunity for statisticians to collaborate with professionals, researchers, and other volunteers involved in international health work. The group’s vision is to achieve better statistical practice—including statistical analysis, design of experiments and surveys, and interpretation of statistical findings—so international health projects and initiatives are delivered more effectively and efficiently.

During the annual business meeting, the group will update members and others on new projects, hear from volunteers who are working on projects, and solicit feedback for improving operations.
