Established in 2013, Ms. Bailey is the second College of Public Health student to be the recipient of this annual award.

This $1000 award will provide registration and travel support for Ms. Bailey to attend the 2016 ASA Conference on Statistical Practice.

“This award will allow me to connect with other respected statisticians when I travel to the Conference in February,” said Ms. Bailey. “It’s a great opportunity to develop my skills and glean valuable advice from practicing statisticians before I begin my career.”

Established in 2013, Ms. Bailey is the second College of Public Health student to be the recipient of this annual award.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for this award by the ASA. The award was established in recognition of Randy Curtin’s excellence both as a statistician and a mentor, and I hope to someday have a career that lives up to the standard he has set,” said Ms. Bailey.

Ms. Bailey is interested in the promotion of healthy behaviors and the improvement of healthcare. She finds biostatistics to be a perfect fit because she is able to apply her skills in mathematics and statistics to help answer important questions in public health. Ms. Bailey is advised by Dr. Abigail Shoben, assistant professor of biostatistics at Ohio State.
