On Sunday, March 25, 2018 the Eastern North American Region (ENAR) of the International Biometric Society will be hosting a workshop entitled "Fostering Diversity in Biostatistics". The workshop will provide a forum for discussion of important issues related to diversity and will be held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, GA. Themes of the workshop will include career and training opportunities within biostatistics. The workshop will focus on connecting underrepresented minority students interested in biostatistics with prefessional biostatisticians in academia, government and industry.

Through panel discussions, current biostatistics graduate students as well as biostatistics professionals in academia, government, and industry will share their experiences and discuss topics such as mentoring, recruiting, and retaining students in related graduate programs. Thus, in addition to discussion with faculty and students from undergraduate institutions, this workshop provides opportunities to network and exchange ideas with participants from various graduate schools, industry, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies.

Registration is required and lunch will be provided.
