>> The attached flyer (http://www.stat.ncsu.edu/sibs/sibs2006.pdf) is  
>> for the *Summer Institutes for Training in Biostatistics*  
>> sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. This  
>> program is offered at three sites:
>>
>> Boston University (Lisa Sullivan, PI)
>> North Carolina State U (Dennis Boos and Marie Davidian, PIs) and  
>> the  University of Wisconsin-Madison (David DeMets, PI).
>>
>> Summer 2006 will be the third year of this exciting program  
>> designed to introduce quantitatively oriented undergraduate  
>> students to Biostatistics.  In this program students learn about  
>> the applications of statistical methods in biomedical research  
>> through coursework and hands-on experience working with real data  
>> collected in major clinical studies. Each of the three program  
>> sites has its own unique features, but they all have in common a  
>> well-conceived, balanced agenda and an ensemble of outstanding and  
>> dedicated investigators and professors who are in charge of this  
>> highly successful training program.
>>
>> A few selected comments from previous participants:
>>
>>    "The SIBS program was a great learning experience!"
>>    "The instructors and TAs were awesome!"
>>    "I loved the program. I felt spoiled the whole time I was here.
>>       It made learning fun and laid back."
>>    "It has definitely made me want to pursue grad school in  
>> biostatistics."
>>
>> Note: participants receive college credit that can transfer back  
>> to their home institutions.  All costs are covered: tuition,  
>> housing, meals, etc.
>>
>> Could you please
>>
>> 1. forward this message to appropriate faculty advisors and  
>> student groups?
>>
>> 2. post the attached flyer in an attractive location?
>>
>> We hope that this information reaches interested students in  
>> mathematics or other quantitative sciences. Career opportunities  
>> are tremendous for biostatisticians. We appreciate any assistance  
>> in reaching your students.
