MIDAS COVID-19 Special Seminar Series: Jon Zelner, “If the outbreak ended, does that mean the interventions worked?”
May 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Jon Zelner, Assistant Professor, Epidemiology, University of Michigan
If the outbreak ended, does that mean the interventions worked?
In this talk Dr. Zelner will discuss some ongoing modeling work focused on understanding when we can and cannot infer that interventions meant to stop or slow infectious disease transmission have actually worked, and when observed outcomes cannot be distinguished from selection bias.
