Tanya Moore (Building Diversity in Science)
Can mathematics be used to empower a community? How does a
biostatistician transfer math skills to work in the
government and non-profit sectors? How is statistics really

working in a city health department and for a non-profit that
is committed to supporting and encouraging emerging scientist
and mathematicians.
