Simulating the Effects of Interventions on a Mobile Work Force

October 10, 2014
Boston, MA

As part of the 2014-2015 Seminar in Occupational and Environmental Health Research, Justin Manjourides, PhD, Assistant Professor, Bouvé College of Health Sciences, Northeastern University, will present Simulating the Effects of Interventions on a Mobile Work Force. The seminar will be held at Harvard School of Public Health, Kresge, Room 502, at 12:30 pm-1:20 pm.

Learning objectives
Participants will be able to:
1) Explain the effect of worker mobility on our ability to implement worksite level interventions
2) Explain the effect of worker mobility on our ability to measure worksite level interventions
3) Describe how simulation data can be used to improve our understanding of the biases introduced by a mobile work force on estimates of intervention effects

The seminar is sponsored by the Harvard-NIOSH Education and Research Center (T42 OH008416), the Environmental and Occupational Medicine and Epidemiology Program, the Harvard-NIEHS Center for Environmental Health (P30 ES000002), the Department of Environmental Health, funded in part by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and co-sponsored by Harvard School of Public Health Center for Work, Health, and Well-being (CWHW).
