Drs. Julie Goodman and Kirsten Zu Organize Symposium on Causal Methods in Epidemiological Studies of Particulate Matter and Mortality

News & Events

Dr. Julie Goodman delivered the introductory talk at the Symposium on Causal Methods in Epidemiological Studies of Particulate Matter and Mortality meeting.  The Symposium focused on answering the basic question:  Have reductions in particulate matter resulted in intended decreases in mortality?  Three competitively selected research teams addressed this question using independent methods and study designs, using the same research-ready dataset consisting of Medicare mortality data and data on air pollutants and meteorological factors from 1999-2013.
