Seminar Description
This Colloquium, sponsored by the Departments of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Society, Human Development and Health, presents an expanded version of the Psychiatric Epidemiology and Biostatistics Colloquium, and will offer presentations on a wide variety of substantive and methodologic issues relevant to Psychiatry, Neurology, and other areas of mental health research and practice. This more formal Colloquium series is paired with the less formal Brain Health Working Group--itself an expansion of the former Neuroepidemiology Working Group, and the two will share the same slot on 4 p.m. on Wednesday afternoons, each taking place approximately once per month during the academic year. We are in the process of merging our mailing lists. In the meantime, please bear with us if you receive multiple announcements about these series.

This consolidation of our formal and informal seminars is part of a larger effort to develop a cross-departmental program in brain health across these three departments. The concentrations in psychiatric and neurologic epidemiology have already been joined, and we hope to announce additional developments in the coming months.
