Logistic Regression Model Building as an Analytic Technique for Identification of Risk Factors for Animal Disease
3rd - 5th June 2008, University of Sydney, Camden
The workshop was led by Dr Ashley Hill, Assistant Professor (Epidemiology), College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Colorado State University, and coordinated by Professor Michael Ward, Chair, Veterinary Public Health and Food Safety.
Dr Hill’s visit was sponsored by a University of Sydney International Visiting Research Fellowship. Dr Hill is the current facilitator for our on-line Veterinary Public Health Management course VETS7005, Veterinary Epidemiology 2.
A total of 27 faculty and students attended the course that included University of Sydney participants from Farm Animal and Veterinary Public Health, Reproduction and Genetics, Parasitology and Livestock Services. In addition, five PhD students (University of Queensland, Murdoch University) from the Australian Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre participated in the course.
Students were greatly appreciative of Ashley’s teaching. At the completion of the course, she was presented with some locally produced port. Ashley thought that teaching a 3-day logistic regression modelling course was reward in itself … and the port was a bonus!
