Fernanda DeBastiani

Dr. Fernanda De Bastiani from LEE-UNIOESTE was one of the winners of the prestigious For Women in Science award. Fernanda de Bastiani is a professor at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), her research focuses on mathematics and statistics about the public health emergency facing the world. Its goal is to help understand the spatial variability of Covid-19 in Pernambuco, noting the number of cases, the number of deaths, the infection rate and other variables in each region. We can assess the mortality rate from the disease and try to correlate it with socio-economic indicators. Or we can see that the more populous municipalities do not necessarily have a higher rate of Covid-19 infection, and then we will study why there are more cases than others in some areas.

Rescheduled LISA 2020 Zoom Meeting

Our next full-network meeting will be on "LISA 2020 Day" Wednesday, 20 October 2021 at 15:00 UTC, but instead of having a Zoom meeting we will join the USAID Zoom symposium event on "Planning for Sustainability" https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89516190814.
Details at: https://www.rtachesn.org/events/


We will follow up with a special Zoom meeting on Thursday, 21 October at 14:30 UTC on "Planning for Sustainability" to discuss the issues raised in the USAID Zoom symposium event. We will send out the usual Zoom link for this meeting.
 

Reminder: Call for Proposals: Case Studies in Stat Lab Sustainability

Stat labs face many challenges that may derail them from the path of strong and sustainable stat labs (see attached manuscript). Several of these challenges were recognized from the synthesized findings from the recently performed LISA 2020 Sustainability Assessment (see attached).
The next step is to determine if these lessons learned and potential solutions can be adapted at other stat labs to overcome the challenges that they are facing and therefore bring them back onto the path of strong and sustainable stat labs.

To that end we are issuing a call for proposals for stat labs to perform experiments to test strategies to overcome their challenges and bring them onto the path of strong and sustainable stat labs. The stat labs will present the results of the experiments at the 4th LISA 2020 Symposium focused on “Sustainability of stat labs and the network” tentatively held in-person in Ghana from 30 May to 3 June, 2022.

Please note that the LISA 2020 Program will not be providing any funding to perform the sustainability experiment, but funding will be available to support travel to the Sustainability Symposium for presenters.

See attached document for more information and proposal template. We look forward to your proposals!
