  I think we have a few minority post-baccalaureates, right?

Dear Colleague:
Please forward this to any students you think might be interested; this 
is the final call for applications.
This is a wonderful opportunity for undergraduates and 
recent post-baccalaureates who are mathematically inclined 
under-represented minorities, including low income, disabled, and first 
generation college students.

With many thanks,

Catherine Haskell

*Summer Program in Quantitative Sciences at the Harvard School of Public 
Health: **June 2 - 30, 2011*

*Website for Eligibility & Requirements: 
http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/biostats/diversity/summer/*

**

*Deadline for Application: February 15, 2011*

If you like mathematics and would like to learn how quantitative methods 
can be applied in the study of human health, then the Summer Program in 
Quantitative Sciences is for you. The Summer Program will introduce you 
to the power and excitement of math applications to public health, 
medicine, and biology, and possibly convince you that this is the career 
direction you've been looking for!

The Summer Program is an intensive 4-week program, during which highly 
qualified undergraduates receive a whirlwind introduction to the fields 
of biostatistics and epidemiology and to the use of quantitative methods 
for biological, environmental, public health, and medical research. The 
program also provides advice about graduate school and the application 
process through GRE preparation, meetings with different departments of 
the Harvard School of Public Health, and individualized mentoring by 
Harvard faculty.

Participants take non-credit introductory courses in biostatistics and 
Stata (a statistical program), and attend a series of afternoon topical 
seminars. The seminars, led by faculty members from various departments 
at the Harvard School of Public Health, are designed to broaden 
participant's understanding of the relationship of biostatistics to 
human health by providing a snapshot of methods developed and applied to 
real research projects in different fields.

Participants also gain research experience through small-group research 
projects directed by faculty and graduate student mentors. Students 
apply statistical methods to real data to address important and timely 
questions. For example, one group of students recently studied whether 
there was a relationship between body mass index and postpartum 
depression. Another group analyzed data from a clinical trial to treat 
head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. And another research project 
examined the effects of arsenic exposure on proteomic profiles in 
Bangladesh. At the end of the program, students present their research 
to the group and to affiliated faculty.

Alumni of the Summer Program have earned or are enrolled in graduate 
degrees in many campuses over the country, including Masters or PhDs in 
Biostatistics and Epidemiology.

Potential applicants should have some aptitude and interest 
in quantitative methods and an interest in public health as a career.  
Prior exposure to statistics is not required.   Housing and travel are 
free and a living stipend of approximately $1700/month is provided for 
the month of June. Please email any questions to:
