2024 DMAC Workshop

  • Save the Date

    Since 2010 we have worked closely with the Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) to combine information from various large databases like Medicare and Medicaid for research purposes. Our goals have evolved to include connecting TCR databases with national surveys to improve research on patient outcomes. We also aim to train new researchers in comparative effectiveness research (CER) across Texas, especially those who are underrepresented. Join us for a workshop on May 22, 2024, to learn more. Lunch will be provided at 12:30 pm, 1st come 1st serve.
