Dr. David P. MacKinnon

Dr. David P. MacKinnon

The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) will hold a Methods: Mind the Gap webinar with Dr. David P. MacKinnon on the connections between traditional and causal mediation methods. It takes place on Thursday, June 18 at 2 p.m.

The presentation will describe the connections between traditional mediation analysis and recently developed causal mediation analysis. Mediating variables have a long and important history in theoretical and applied research because they describe how and why two variables are related. 

MacKinnon has been developing, evaluating and applying methods to assess how interventions work for more than 30 years. He is a Foundation professor of psychology at Arizona State University. 

Registration is required at prevention.nih.gov/education-training/methods-mind-gap/connections-between-traditional-and-causal-mediation-methods. The webinar will be recorded and available on the ODP website within about a week.
