This year luncheon speakers will feature Lisa LaVange (Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Biostatistics, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; 2018 President of the American Statistical Association) and  Daniel Jeske (Professor, Department of Statistics University of California, Riverside; Editor-in-Chief, The American Statistician) to talk about the real world evidence and alternatives to traditional p-values. Mimi Kim (Division Head, Division of Biostatistics Albert Einstein College of Medicine​) is the moderator. 

Both of these topics have been of keen interest to statisticians lately.  It will be exciting to hear from individuals who sit at the center of these topics!   

We are very excited about hearing more from our affiliate colleagues on this topic and the discussion that will follow.
