Dear friends of the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health,
La version française suit l’anglais.

As 2015 draws to a close, it is my pleasure to provide an update from the Department and some of the highlights of what has been a busy year for us. As usual, teaching and mentoring were at the center of our activities in 2015; a year which gave us ample opportunities to witness the high quality of our graduate students and the unwavering commitment of our professors to our students.
