Statistical concepts are fundamental to many regulatory interactions within your organization or regulatory agencies.  This presentation will tackle a few key statistical concepts and help you better understand what it’s all about and its importance.  You will not need to be an expert in mathematics/statistics or memorize formulae for this presentation. This presentation will not make you a statistician (unless you are already one).

A live Q&A portion with the speaker will follow the presentation.

This event is brought to you by the RAPS Ontario Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credit.
