Little To Give Next ‘Mind the Gap’ Seminar, June 29
Dr. Todd D. Little, director of the Institute for Measurement, Methodology, Analysis and Policy and professor of educational psychology and leadership at Texas Tech University, will speak on “Optimizing Inferences Using Principled Missing Data Treatments” at the Office of Disease Prevention’s next Medicine: Mind the Gap seminar. It will be held Wednesday, June 29 from 11 a.m. to noon via NIH VideoCast, http://videocast.nih.gov/.
Missing data present a common problem for prevention research; improperly handling missing data can severely compromise the validity of a study’s inferences. Little will highlight the power and utility of modern principled treatments for missing data to optimize inferences. He is internationally recognized for his quantitative work on various aspects of applied structural equation modeling, as well as his substantive developmental research.
Little will accept questions before and during his presentation via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Twitter with #NIHMtG.
