CVD Epidemiology Journal Club

The Cardiovascular Epidemiology Journal Club is a forum for scientific interaction between the cardiovascular epidemiology trainees, collaborating faculty and other students with interest in cardiovascular epidemiology. The main focus is the presentation of research being conducted by the students of the cardiovascular epidemiology training program which may take the form of practice for the overview, comprehensive, or defense milestones, preparation for conference presentations, and informal works-in-progress (WIP) presentations. In addition, we will review published articles related to cardiovascular epidemiology and methodology. This semester, the focus is on methods to use in cardiovascular epidemiology research.
