Workshop on International Population Health

This workshop will feature a deep-dive into data creation for international and comparative population science. Key topics will include community context, child health, mental health, and sociogenomic research. 
International and comparative research is essential to: 

  • learn the variations in population dynamics across different populations; 
  • predict the future of global population trends; and 
  • test hypotheses across widely varying context and determine the limits on forces producing population change. 
Each day of this five-day intensive workshop is structured as an independent, 1-day, short course. The workshop will meet daily June 28 - July 2 from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., EST and include lectures and hands-on lab training. The Chitwan Valley Family Study (CVFS) will be used as a featured example and compared to other international population studies as appropriate for the daily topics. The workshop will be offered in a remote format.
