JH Biostat Computing Club 2018-19

I and Guoqing Wang hosted the Department of Biostatistics students Computing Club in 2018-19 academic year.

  • Computing Club is one-hour session which gives students opportunities to share and develop computing skills useful for biostatisticians. It is held every other Tuesday 12:15-1:15 PM at JH SPH. Importantly, food 🍕🍌 is provided in every session!

  • Past and upcoming topics and locations for 2018-19 academic year are listed below.
