Epidemiological Tools Seminar

Chanelle Howe, RGSS Assistant Professor of Public Health, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, Brown University


This workshop will use causal diagrams to characterize selection bias as well as discuss tools for minimizing selection bias. Such tools include redefining the target population, changing the study design, and employing analytic approaches (e.g., standard regression adjustment and inverse probability weighting).
