My story: Amalie Nilsen
From 11th-15th of June I attended the course “Introduction to multi-level modeling” at Epidemiology and Population Health Summer Institute at Columbia University (EPIC). The summer institute provides courses on a wide range of epidemiological topics for those interested in public health.

My story: Anders Årnes
On June 10 – June 16, 2018, I was lucky to attend the second course week of the annual summer school hosted by BiostatEpi, at a castle in northern Italy. My two select classes were ‘Longitudinal Data Analysis’ and ‘Joint Modelling of Longitudinal and Survival Data’. The stay was made possible through funding by EPINOR.
