Professor of Epidemiology, University of California, Berkeley
January 19, 2015 (Monday)
1 – 5 PM
Location: Faculty Club, 3450 McTavish, Montréal
In this session, Professor Colford will discuss a variety of study designs and methods employed by epidemiologists, economists, and
public policy investigators to generate evidence through “Impact Evaluations” of public health programs; the focus will be on
programs related to global health and development. The underlying principles will be illustrated with detailed examples employing
cluster randomized trials, matched cohorts, regression discontinuity, and stepped wedge designs. The role of (and adjustment for)
participant compliance will be highlighted with a discussion of a proposed estimator of complier average causal effects.
