CICATS Will Host the Hartford Area SAS User’s Group on February 19, 2015

Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (CICATS) will be hosting the Hartford Area SAS User’s Group (HASUG) on February 19, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in Grossman Auditorium at 400 Farmington Ave. Breakfast will be provided.

Dr. Terry Murphy will be speaking on the topic of ‘Using Other People’s Macros’. Dr. Murphy, Assistant Professor in the Geriatrics Section of the Department of Internal Medicine of the Yale University School of Medicine. He is also a senior biostatistician at its Program on Aging and a member of the Biostatistics Core of Yale’s Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center. Complementing his training in engineering and statistics, Dr. Murphy has been working on aging-related studies for nine years. His research interests involve the modeling of complex datasets that typically involve missing data, longitudinal trends, spatial clustering, and multiply correlated outcomes, especially within the Bayesian context. For over six years he co-led a Bayesian study group and has published methods papers that demonstrate the advantages of Bayesian approaches in spatial applications and longitudinal modeling.

The second portion of the meeting will be an open forum for questions and answers on using SAS. Attendees will be asked to share what they are doing, as well as what they would like to see at the quarterly meetings in the future.
