We are pleased to announce a new, virtual short course that will provide a non-technical introduction to concepts in causality for researchers in a wide range of clinical and social-science fields. In just two half-days, top experts from the University of Pennsylvania and Rutgers University will cover a variety of foundational topics, grounded in real-world applications. Attendees should have a basic understanding of statistical regression modeling.
Our capacity is limited, so register now to attend this 2-day short course. Please note that advance registration is required, and you must create an account in order to register. Once you have completed the registration and payment process, you will receive the BlueJeans conference call information. You will receive an additional email the day before the conference, which will again contain all the necessary information. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
