WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

Public health researchers have a lot of information to manage. Beyond simply tracking how health issues spread, there's environmental information to gather and decipher as well as socio economic or infrastructural data to analyze. The mapping of such information can help researchers and medical professionals better manage a public health issue. Rosemary Pennington is joined by regular panelist John Bailer and guest is Lance Waller. Waller is Rowland's professor and chair of the department of biostatistics and bioinformatics in the Roland School of Public Health at Emory University. 

Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association.
