Doug Landsittel Named Associate Director of the CRHC Data Center

Doug Landsittel, PhD, was recently named the associate director of the Center for Research on Health Care (CRHC) Data Center.

As indicated by Doris Rubio, PhD, director of the Data Center, Dr. Landsittel has been with the center for approximately 2 years: "Before coming here, he had over 12 years of experience as a statistician and educator at the University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University, and three different divisions or laboratories of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). During the majority of this time, he acted in a supervisory capacity, serving as a team leader and acting branch chief for NIOSH, as a senior statistician for two different NIOSH laboratories, and as the associate director and the interim director of biostatistics for the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. While at the Data Center, Dr. Landsittel has shown considerable leadership with our statistics unit. Please join me in welcoming him into this new leadership position."
