The NIH Office of Disease Prevention will present a Mind the Gap webinar: Design and Analysis of Individually Randomized Group-Treatment Trials in Public Health on Tuesday, Apr. 24 from 11 a.m. to noon. The speaker is Dr. Sherri Pals, a mathematical statistician at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Individually randomized group-treatment trials are studies in which individual participants are randomly assigned to study conditions, but treatment is administered in groups. Because participants share a group environment and interact with each other, observations taken on participants may be correlated within treatment groups.

In her work in domestic and international HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, Pals has designed and analyzed numerous trials and enjoys teaching and mentoring others in this area.

She will accept questions during the webinar via WebEx and Twitter. Use the hashtag #NIHMtG. Registration is required and can be done at
