The McGoldrick program hosted its Quantitative Methods in Global Health: Mini-Conference on Tuesday, August 16. Over 50 participants joined for the virtual conference, most from parts of sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Sikhulele Moyo was the keynote speaker, presenting an excellent talk entitled “How pathogen genomics data has shaped global public health in the era of COVID-19.” You can watch a recording of the talk here.
Participants then had a chance to hear from different speakers during the lightening talks, network with each other, and also participate in a short Data Visualization Workshop taught by Amy Zhou, a current PhD student in the department. For more information, please visit the conference website.
