This is good. However, smarter science deniers will say that you can do all of these things and still, knowingly or unknowingly, be creating biased/untrue findings; they say all of science is just a huge data cherry picking contest<–which is true, to a large degree! –> All the more reason to be thorough, reproduce, and #openscience, #data, #code, etc. Don’t walk away from or doubt #science, just do it better yourself, dig deeper, and we should train better and more student, citizen and professional scientists…. this is a no-brainer in my opinion.
Last week I was a guest on the Philadelphia local NPR station 90.9 WHYY RadioTimes, with host Marty Moss-Coane, Michael Siegal from Boston University, and Reuters reporter, Jillian Mincer. I was proud to represent the Southeastern Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Project, a program of the Health Promotion Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania, an affiliate of Public Health Management Corporation. Feel free to share/link. Any questions, contact me at smccormick (AT) phmc.org.
Looks like the audio was removed, but if I can find a new link or get permission to share it directly, I will. It was a solid discussion.
Big news! I have been accepted to Temple University’s Public Health doctoral program, concentrating on Behavioral and Health Sciences. I am very excited to be working the other students and faculty at Temple. They have a great reputation for research in the public health, health psychology, and environmental health fields.
Starting the end of this month I will be TAing, taking advanced courses in statistics, research methods, public health theories and program evaluation. Hopefully, I will still have time for my work at the Clean Air Council, independent research, this blog and my music!
Wish me luck!
