PHASTAR pro bono launch

PHASTAR were delighted to launch the pro bono scheme on the 19th of May at the Florence Nightingale Museum. Special guest Professor Deborah Ashby, Director of the School of Public Health, Imperial College and Royal Statistical Society Immediate Past President, gave the presentation titled:

Florence Nightingale’s legacy: using data to improve health from the time of the Crimea to the time of the coronavirus

Absract: Florence Nightingale, best known as the Lady with the Lamp, was astute at persuading people to raise money for causes she care about. She is also recognised as a pioneering and passionate statistician. She had argued successfully with her parents to be allowed to study mathematics, and later nursing, and then combined these skills with her political awareness to use data imaginatively and powerfully to improve health. Two centuries after her birth, the need for statistical and data skills to improve health show no signs of abating. What lessons can we draw from Florence Nightingale?
