JSM 2021

The Mental Health Statistics Section is sponsoring and cosponsoring several sessions at the 2021 Joint Statistical Meetings. We hope you will be able to join us!

Also, a great way to talk with other members or learn more about the section is to attend our Section Mixer (this year, co-sponsored by the Health Policy Statistics Section). It will be held on Monday (8/9) from 5:30-7 pm. For a Zoom link for the mixer, email Alex De Nadai at adenadai@txstate.edu.
