CHOIR Seminar Series

The Center for Health Outcomes and Informatics Research (CHOIR), a component of Loyola University Chicago’s Health Sciences Division, serves to educate and engage clinical faculty, healthcare professionals, resident physicians and health sciences students in the fundamentals of health outcomes research and data-driven healthcare delivery. CHOIR’s primary objective is to create a data-driven culture in the service of improved outcomes and health equity. The CHOIR seminar series includes videorecorded lectures that can be reviewed.
