This event does not repeat

AEA mini-symposium on the theme of Data Linkage. It will be held on Wednesday 6th July at 6pm at the Alfred Centre. Please see attached flyer for details. You will hear from speakers with a range of perspectives, from the role of data provider to end user. The evening will focus on the methods of data linkage, with some examples of successful projects.

Thanks to everyone who responded to our survey earlier this year. We have tried to take into account people’s responses when planning this event. The majority of respondents were keen for events to focus on epidemiological methods and there was roughly equal preference for holding events at the Doherty Institute or the Alfred Centre. You also indicated that you would be more likely to attend an event that included several speakers and was held in the evening.

All are welcome, so please forward to your departments. Light refreshments will be served, so please RSVP to help us with catering.
