"Analysis of Longitudinal Data Under Biased Sampling"
Yong Chen, Ph.D. Assistant Professor Division of Biostatistics University of Texas School of Public Health Abstract:Over the past few decades, a dramatic increase in the incidence of obesity has become a worldwide health issue, contributing significantly as a risk factor of many diseases. Many individuals participate in web-based weight loss programs where their weights, physical activities and diets are self-reported. Such web-based program generated data poses new challenges to statistical modeling and inference, including subject-specific self-reporting times and outcome-dependent missingness. These challenges are known as biased sampling problem in statistical literature, and can lead to substantial bias in inference. In this talk, we propose a framework of novel statistical methods to efficiently detect and adjust for sampling bias, and to evaluate both the overall effectiveness of the weight loss program and the subject-specific effects of website usages on weight loss. The proposed methods provide elegant solutions for detecting and eliminating the impacts of biased sampling, and can achieve unbiased inference without fully specifying the complex data-generating mechanism. We apply the proposed methods to evaluate the effectiveness of a web-based program on weight loss, controlling the nonlinear trajectory of weights over time.

A double-edged sword"
March 24, 2015
Smilow Center for Translational Research, 12th Floor
Conference Room 12-146
CUGH's sixth annual conference is shaping up to be one of our best ever. The event's theme, 'Mobilizing Research for Global Health' will bring together some of the leading researchers from around the world. This year, half of the sessions are arranged around particularly compelling plenary presentations that address fundamental global health challenges. These will lead into breakout sessions to delve into the research challenges in basic and translational science, and the diverse issues in implementation. This allows the meeting to both focus and explore broadly across the whole research spectrum. The themes include genetics and vaccines, One Health (including antimicrobial resistance and food security), the drivers of non-communicable diseases, and a deep look at improvement science. Other pressing global challenges will also be addressed from building smart cities and protecting health workers in conflict zones to the Ebola crisis. Researchers, educators, implementers, faculty, students, administrators, members of NGOs, the private and public sectors will all find many sessions relevant to their interests across. Attendees and presenters will come from the medical and social sciences and address the challenges of delivering better health to populations everywhere. A special session entitled "Big Problems – Big Ideas" will include a panel of internationally renowned leaders who will share their bold and share creative ways to improve health outcomes. Additional pre-conference workshops are being planned with the National Cancer Institute on global cancer, and much more. Stay tuned to this site for additional details on programs and registration information.
Students will have a chance this year to engage leading researchers in small meet-the-speaker sessions. For everyone, the conference will be an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research in global health and interact with a broad range of individuals from the world's leading academic centers and organizations involved in addressing global health challenges. It is an excellent opportunity to share knowledge, and build new partnerships.
We are proud that once again a special presentation will be made by the winner of the Gairdner Global Health Award. Our exciting Global Health Documentary Film Festival with the Pulitzer Center, video competition and awards that honor leaders in global health will be held. Practical workshops will cover a range of topics from education and advocacy to enabling systems. We are also delighted that the Lancet Global Health will again publish, in a special conference insert, the oral abstract presentations and the Annals of Global Health will publish up to 200 poster abstracts. Note the deadline to submit abstracts is Oct 15.
We sincerely hope that you will attend our 6th annual conference. We encourage attendees from outside the US, particularly those from developing nations to join us March 26-28, 2015.
The CUGH conference will increase your knowledge, broaden your networks, and enhance your efforts to tackle the challenges to improve the health and well-being of people around the world. Please spread the word about CUGH 2015. We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Boston, Massachusetts!
