Introduction to space-time joinpoint regression and change of support with applications to geospatial cancer data in the Vesta software
Oct. 23, 2023 | 2pm EST | Virtual
BioMedware is teaming up with NAACCR for a webinar on October 23 titled, “Introduction to space-time joinpoint regression and change of support with applications to geospatial cancer data in the Vesta software”. This presentation will dive into how users can best harness the power of Vesta—a powerful software for visualization and exploratory space-time analysis and modeling.
This webinar will demonstrate four examples of using Vesta to answer public health questions, including hypothesis generation (identification of spatial patterns for cervical mortality that account for ethnicity and poverty, visualization of late-stage breast cancer incidence) and hypothesis testing (Flint water lead levels, late-stage breast cancer incidence).
To sign up for the event, simply create a free NAACCR account and register.
