About the Topic
Routinely collected administrative health and social data are increasingly available internationally. New Zealand has an integrated data environment that links longitudinal microdata about individuals, households, businesses and organisations. The data include education, income, migration, benefits, justice, and health for the whole population. In this talk, Dr Nghiem will discuss her research that has capitalised on this integrated data infrastructure, and creates research impact at an international level and influences policy decision making to improve population health outcomes.

This seminar opens for all VinUni students, faculty, staff and partners. We are looking forward to your attendance!
