Congratulations to CSM Statistician Jamie Stokes who won 2nd prize for his oral presentation "Calculating Avoidable Deaths for Cancer Patient Survival" at the YSM 2019 in Leeds.

The talk focused on what avoidable mortality is, how it is calculated and how it can be used to communicate complex survival statistics to the general population in a more easily understandable manner.

Well done Jamie!
