National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program

May 1 Deadline Approaching to Apply for Summer Workshops

Only a few weeks remain until the May 1, 2014 deadline to register for two summer workshops hosted by the National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP).

The "Bayesian Methods for Prevention and Intervention Science" workshop will be held June 30 to July 2, 2014. Dr. David Kaplan, from the University of Wisconsin, is the instructor. The orientation of this workshop is to introduce prevention and intervention scientists to the basic elements of Bayesian statistics and to show, through discussion and practice, why the Bayesian perspective provides a powerful alternative to the frequentist perspective. The workshop will utilize the soon-to-be-released SAFE Children data. Get more information about this workshop and apply online using this link to the ICPSR Summer Program portal.

"The Pathways to Desistance Study: Analyzing the Life Event Calendar Data for Substance Abuse Research" will be held July 28 to July 30, 2014. Drs. Edward Mulvey and Carol Schubert from the University of Pittsburgh are instructors for this workshop. The course will cover data from all four of the current Pathways studies released in the Pathways to Desistance series. The main focus of the workshop will be to introduce researchers on how to utilize the Life Event Calendar Data. Get more information about this workshop and apply online using this link to the ICPSR Summer Program portal.

Both workshops will be in Ann Arbor, MI. Enrollment is free but space is limited and applications are required.

We hope to see you here in Ann Arbor this summer!
