Brogan lecture to look at AIDS statistics and public health
Emory Report | April 17, 2012
"AIDS: Statistical Science and Public Health" is this year's Donna J. Brogan Lecture set for Monday, April 23, at 4 p.m. in the Klamon Room in the Claudia Nance Rollins building of the Rollins School of Public Health. A reception follows.
Ron Brookmeyer, professor of biostatistics at the University of California-Los Angeles School of Public Health, will give the annual lecture, which is free and open to the public.
His research is at the interface of biostatistics, epidemiology and public health. Brookmeyer uses the tools of the statistical and informational sciences to address global public health problems such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic, biosecurity issues such as anthrax, disease surveillance, and the health challenges of aging populations.
Established in late 2004 by the biostatistics department in Rollins, the annual lecture honors Donna J. Brogan, former department chair and professor emerita since her retirement from Emory in 2004.
