This page is dedicated to the Book Club I organized for the PhD students in epidemiology at Aarhus University, Department of Clinical Epidemiology (Klinisk Epidemiologisk Afdeling, KEA) and everyone who is interested in causal inference, epidemiology, statistics, or intersection of these amazing sciences. If you’d like the the calendar invitation to be shared with you by email, please, send me a short e-mail with the topic “The effect book club”.

* Selection bias:
I am teaching intro to epidemiology concepts to research year students at @DCEAarhus. One of the topics I mention is retiring null hypothesis testing. Here are some of my favorite materials on abolishing null hypothesis testing/p-value misinterpretation⤵️— Elena Dudukina @email@example.com (@evpatora) August 29, 2022
