Causal Mediation Analysis Training: Methods and Applications Using Health Data COVID-19 Update: The Causal Mediation Analysis Training will no longer take place in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Training will instead be a live-stream, remote training that takes place over live, online video on August 12-14, 2020 from 10am EDT – 5pm EDT. Please note this training is not a self-paced, pre-recorded online training. The Causal Mediation Analysis Training is a 3-day intensive boot camp of seminars and hands-on analytical sessions to provide an overview of concepts and data analysis methods used to investigate mediating mechanisms.
