Coast to Coast Seminars at the IRMACS Centre

The topic of the Spring 2015 C2C seminar series is “The power of linked administrative health data for population health research: robust data and progressive data analytics”.

This upcoming Coast to Coast Seminar Series on Population Health Research focuses on some of the exceptional work that is currently being done in this field using administrative data. It highlights how cross-sectoral, longitudinal studies of health indicators and progressive analytic techniques can produce outstanding contributions to inform health-related policy-making for healthier communities.

The table below lists the upcoming Coast to Coast Seminars at the IRMACS Centre. You can get a list of these seminars with their abstracts by clicking on the title of the talk of interest. For those seminars without abstracts, the abstracts will be provided closer to the date of the seminar.
