StatStart: A Summer Program in Biostatistics

Students had an extremely productive month during StatStart, a summer program in biostatistics that runs through the month of July. Led by Professor Marcello Pagano and doctoral students Sam Tracy, Octavious Talbot, Kelly Mosesso and Alex Ocampo, the program provides high school students from under-represented minority and low-income backgrounds with an introduction to statistical programming, with course goals including the development of basic programming and problem-solving skills.
