Webinar: Suicide prevention enabled by data science

Dr. Colin G. Walsh will present preventive strategies that integrate clinical data science, informatics, and mental health expertise in an attempt to prevent suicidal thoughts and behaviors. He will explain basic concepts in applied predictive modeling relevant to an audience interested in disease prevention. He will share examples of active research and operational efforts in this domain in civilian and active duty military environments.

Dr. Walsh’s research includes: (1) machine learning in behavioral health, including suicide prevention and psychiatric phenotyping; (2) clinical decision support to enable prevention; (3) predictive modeling using electronic health record (EHR) data; and (4) evaluation of value-based care through data science. His published research has been featured in Newsweek, Wired, Quartz, NBC News, ACM Tech News, Reuters, and more.
