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

Most people know Florence Nightingale as the founder of modern nursing. She first came to fame while nursing wounded British soldiers during the Crimean war. After the war, she founded what is considered to be the first secular school of nursing in the world, but the lady with the lamp also made significant contributions to the field of statistics. As the 200th anniversary of Nightingale’s birth approaches, her statistical work is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined by panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami’s Statistics Department and Richard Campbell former Chair of Media, Journalism, and Film. Their guest is a returning guest, Vicki Hertzberg. Hertzberg is the Director of the Center for Nursing Data Science at Emory University.
