Introduction to R for Public Health Research

June 21, 2021 through June 25, 2021

1:30 PM-5:00 PM

Instructor: Brian Lee, PhD, associate professor, Drexel Dornsife School of Public Health

This course is designed to provide students with a hands-on introduction to programming skills and analytic concepts in R. Participants will address analytical challenges that a public health data analyst might encounter. The focus of the course is not comprehensive knowledge of R, but rather a foundation of knowledge that can be expanded on after the course concludes. The interactive classes will feature a lecture component and a laboratory component. The RStudio environment will be the interface used for all classroom discussion. 

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Comfortably operate in the R environment. 
  • Perform basic data management in R. 
  • Understand generic programming concepts in R. 
  • Analyze data in R.

Prerequisite knowledge: Prior experience with a statistical programming language (e.g., SAS, Stata) is recommended but not required. 

Technical requirements: R and RStudio free software is available for participants to install on their computers.
