This seminar series convenes researchers and trainees interested in a broad spectrum of Health Disparities, Aging and Outcomes and Effectiveness Research. Speakers are invited to share research methods that may be applied to other areas of research, and secondary dataset information and availability as well as analyses results from the data, and other tips and techniques applicable to health services and health disparities research.

Goals for the overview of secondary data sets available for analysis:

  • Present an overview of the dataset and its data elements
  • Provide examples of research questions that can be addressed with dataset
  • Include participation of junior investigators who have used data (if possible)
  • Discuss protocol for access to data and resources for data management/analysis

Goals for the HSR/OER methods in current research projects, grants, and/or publications:

  • Present work with detail on research methods that may be applied to other areas of research
  • Focus on scientific methods with attention for potential cross-pollination in terms of application/adaptation of methods and/or new collaboration
  • Discuss research methods and tools with potential for wider implementation. Ex: How can x technology or approach that has been used to successful study disease y in z setting translate or be applied to study another disease in another setting?

WHEN: These seminars are on the first Thursday of every month at noon
 (12:00-1:00 pm Central Time)
