Workshop Registration Form

We are planning for an in-person meeting. However, because of uncertainty about how the pandemic situation will progress, this may not be possible, and we may decide to pivot to a virtual workshop if we cannot meet in person. Participants will be notified in advance if the workshop is virtual.

The ENAR Fostering Diversity in Biostatistics Workshop will consist of a series of informative speakers and panelists from various sectors (i.e., academia, industry, and government) at both professional and pre-professional levels that will provide participants with important insight into the field of Biostatistics. We also intend to engage participants in smaller, more intimate, roundtable discussions with professionals and students in the field. From the list below, please select up to two roundtable discussion topics that would be of the most interest to you.
