Workshop Testimonials

Quote The workshop on meta-analysis you presented at CDC was incredibly helpful. It provided us with basic and also up-to-date knowledge and skills to critique and perform meta-analyses.

Nicole Crepaz at CDC

Quote A very clear, usable way to approach meta-analysis. As a non-statistician, I found this course very understandable and applicable to my work in systematic reviews. Dr. Borenstein has a gift of being able to clearly explain difficult concepts. This is a fantastic course!
