Event Details

Bethany Bray, associate research professor of human development and family study, will present “Advancing Intervention Science and Promoting Health Equity Using Innovative Quantitative Methods” at the next Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Recent Topics in Research Methods Seminar Series. This seminar will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 116 Henderson, University Park. It will also be streamed to room 2008 at Academic Support Building at Penn State College of Medicine and stream online. A streaming link is provided upon registration.

This talk will focus on addressing public health issues that effective interventions do not work equally well for all individuals. Bray will discuss recent advances in mixture modeling and time-varying effect modeling that can help researchers understand multidimensional and dynamic moderators. These advances include latent class analysis with distal outcomes, latent class moderation, causal inference with latent class variables, and latent class analysis with time-varying effects. 

Information about how to learn more and get involved in research projects at The Methodology Center in the College of Health and Human Development will also be discussed.

The Recent Topics in Research Methods Seminar Series features lectures on fundamental research methods in the fall semester with more advanced topics in the spring semester. Statisticians and methodologists from multiple Penn State departments present these seminars.

Register here by 5 p.m. on Feb. 11.

Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design is part of Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
