Welcome to the course page for R for Epidemiologists, Fall 2017!

Class is held M/W 11:15-12:30, McGavran-Greenberg Hall 2306.

Download Syllabus and NC births data for homework. See the Resources page for information about Datacamp invites. Fill out the class Roster and join the google group to get class messages.

If you joined the class late: welcome! We suggest you review (and work through in R!) the previous slides, download and load the data, and review the past messages in the google group to get you up to speed. The 8/30 lecture marked the end/culmination of the foundations section, before digging into our real dataset, so that might be a good one to review the recording for.
