Join the IHSI Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) team for "Validity Matters: Enhancing the Credibility of Health Research" on April 25 at noon. This webinar offers both seasoned and aspiring researchers valuable insights and practical tips to bolster the credibility of your work and to critique the studies you read or review.

In the ever-evolving landscape of health, including public health, medicine, and social and behavioral science, the credibility of research findings is paramount. Validity, the cornerstone of scientific inquiry, ensures that our conclusions accurately reflect reality and can be relied upon to guide policy and practice.

In this webinar, Jesus Sarol, Ph.D., IHSI Senior Research Biostatistician, will delve into the intricacies of validity assessment from the perspective of epidemiologic research. He will discuss validity in different aspects or stages of research study, such as subject selection, measurement, analysis, and interpretation, and describe some common pitfalls and their consequences.

Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of validity, elevate the quality of your research, and embark on a journey toward more robust and reliable scientific inquiry.
