The mission of Western University’s Student Chapter of the Canadian Society for Epidemiology and Biostatistics – CSEB @WesternU - is to facilitate professional development, continuing education and research dissemination for students and recent graduates of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
- Provide students in epidemiology and biostatistics with opportunities to expand their knowledge by sharing their research through organized poster and oral presentations.
- Engage student networking across multiple professional organizations within existing departmental relationships. These include CSEB host institutions, local organizations (e.g. health unit, CAMH) and other epidemiology and biostatistics research centres.
- Promote interest in epidemiology and biostatistics in the broader Western community by enhancing students’ knowledge in the field, through sharing innovative research findings.
- Provide opportunities for student collaboration across related scientific disciplines.
- Build enthusiasm among current and prospective students in epidemiology and biostatistics.
