Florence Nightingale

The American Statistical Association (ASA) and the Caucus for Women in Statistics (CWS) are pleased to host the second annual Florence Nightingale Day.  This  event will be held for middle and high school  students at the Ohio State University campus as well as other locations across the country on Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Florence Nightingale was a founder of modern nursing and a pioneer of statistical graphics, and is credited with developing a variant of the well-known pie chart to track disease mortality over time.

Any Ohio students in grades 8-12 are invited to attend this free event at The Ohio State University as part of a similar national celebration to promote the science of data.  To register, please visit the Florence Nightingale Day at OSU website.  Note that since space is limited we encourage you to register early.
