The Education and Training Core (ETC) of the Johns Hopkins Global Center on Childhood Obesity (JHGCCO) is pleased to announce a training workshop entitled Agent-based and System Dynamics Models: New Tools for UnderstandingObesity. The workshop will begin at noon on Wednesday, April 10, and run until 6 pm on Thursday, April 11, with a dinner and reception on Wednesday night.
The workshop is intended for researchers, program staff, students, trainees, faculty and those with an interest in learning about how agent-based (ABM) and system dynamics (SD) models can be used to gain insights into the causes of, and potential solutions for, the obesity epidemic. The primary faculty for this workshop include Prof. Tak Igusa from the Johns Hopkins Systems Institute and the Whiting School of Engineering, and Prof. Thomas Glass from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. There will also be an invited lecture and discussion by Dr. Amy Auchincloss, Ph.D., MPH, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Drexel University.
Dr. Scott Levin, Director and Leadership Council Chair of the Systems Institute, will be participating in the Rising to the Challenge event in Chicago on June 25, 6pm at the Trump International Hotel. Rising to the Challenge is an effort to raise $4.5 billion, primarily to support students, faculty, research, and interdisciplinary solutions to some of humanity’s most important problems.
Join your fellow Hopkins alumni, parents, students, and friends to tell us what you think face to face! https://rising.jhu.edu/chicago
