Speaker: Professor Jeffrey Morris, University of Pennsylvania

Title: A Seat at the Table: The Key Role of Statistics and Data Science in the COVID-19 Pandemic

Call for Submissions: HPSS Discussions on Health Policy and Trainee Mentoring Studios

HPSS is seeking submissions from student and postdoctoral trainees to participate in informal research discussions and mentorship studios with the chance to have your work highlighted in a virtual HPSS-wide discussion event!


Each applicant will be assigned to a group of at most 4 other trainees and a single senior mentor, with groups formed according to research topic.  The senior mentor will facilitate a virtual studio event with the group that will provide an opportunity to:

  • Meet other trainees working on similar topics in an informal setting

  • Receive informal mentorship from a senior colleague working in a similar area

  • Obtain feedback on your completed or ongoing research project


After the mentorship studios, selected participants will have their work featured in an HPSS-sponsored virtual event consisting of brief research talks and discussion.  


Application Requirements: A 1-page .pdf “digest” containing: (1) Title of research project; (2) Name affiliation of trainee and all collaborators; (3) Research abstract describing objectives, methodology, and key (anticipated) results; (4) A statement describing impact and relevance for health policy; (5) Names of up to 5 suggested senior colleagues from whom you might like feedback/mentorship.  Submit applications via email to: Professor Cory Zigler


Timeline: Applications must be received by September 1, 2021.  Research studios are expected to be held during October 2021, with HPSS-wide virtual events held to feature selected participants in January 2022.
