New Co-Authored Blog: Gradifying!

I’ve been invited to blog at Gradifying!

Exciting news everyone!

I’ve been invited to blog over at Gradifying, a new grad student run blog at Queen’s University through their School of Graduate Studies! The blog will be focused on life in Kingston and graduate life at Queen’s, but some of the topics will be applicable to anyone in graduate school, like picking a research supervisor. If there’s anything in particular you’d like us to cover, don’t hesitate to let us know.

The blog has more information about my co-bloggers Sharday and Megan, as well more about me there too. For more info, be sure to take a look at the Gradifying website, and also follow us on Twitter!

Blog Update: A New Series – Epi Night School!

Good News Everyone!

Rene Najera hosted a very popular blog that has since been taken down. As part of his blog, he started a series entitled “Epi Night School,” where he briefly covered common experimental designs, and talked about their strengths and weaknesses. EpiRen has graciously allowed me to repost them here with my own edits.

I’m going to keep the spirit alive, but also provide page references in common Epidemiology textbooks such as Rothman’s Epidemiology: An Introduction, Hennekens’ Epidemiology in Medicine and Szklo and Nieto’s Epidemiology: Beyond the Basics.

Thanks Rene!

I’m assuming people have some questions, so I’m going to answer some of the most common ones: Who am I? Why am I doing this? What am I going to do? And finally: Does peanut butter and honey taste nearly as good as peanut butter and jelly?

More after the jump.
