From Parisa Meisami, Student Representative:
For many of us, summertime is equal to internship. Somehow, this unique opportunity gives us a taste from our future job.
Xu Dihua a PhD student at UMBC tells us about her experience at NHLBI: "By the end of last year I knew I had to gain some work experience out there in the real world. I am so glad I have chosen and been chosen by NHLBI. It is a great place to work. Everyone in the Office was extremely knowledgeable and always willing to help. They treat us as one of them. I really enjoy the environment there. I got tons of help from my mentor Dr. Tian. She basically guided me step-by-step into this biostatistics world. She took me to all the meetings with investigators, made me realize how important to have good understanding of the medical backgrounds. I really learned a lot from everyone in the group, both statistical and non-statistical aspects. Oh, almost forgot to mention there is a nice summer intern T-shirt at the end."
We have just begun the academic year. Continue your great job and inform us about your activities. We need your expertise to improve the society.Return to top

All meetings are in Room S3031, 1800 M St, NW from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Enter the South Tower & take the elevator to the 3rd floor to check in at the guard's desk.
First-time attendees should contact Charlie Hallahan, 202-694-5051, firstname.lastname@example.org, and leave their name. Directions to the building & many links of statistical interest can be found at the SIGSTAT website.

The original schedule is posted on http://www.cpcug.org/user/sigstat/Schedule.htm that does not reflect changes noted above (i.e., discussions for each topic will be held in the following month that is actually posted).Return to top
