A six-week Los Angeles summer program in USC’s Department of Population and Public Health Sciences will train underrepresented students to explore health issues using quantitative methods June 15 to July 24.

Funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, LA’s Biostatistics Education Summer Training Program (LA’s BEST @USC) provides public health training from expert biostatisticians, epidemiologists and data scientists—all expenses paid—at the University of Southern California.

Participants will earn USC course credit while exploring health data analysis, epidemiology, clinical trials, statistical genetics and spatial statistics for geographical modeling. In addition to learning R, a widely used research software, the students will examine data from groundbreaking public health research studies including the Southern California Children’s Health Study.
