Yang, Wei Ph.D., M.D.


Dr. Wei Yang joined UNR in 2007 as a Professor and the Director of Nevada Center for Health Statistics and Informatics (NCHSI). Through an approach known as "Centralized Health Data Warehouse", NCHSI extends health statistics beyond simply using statistics and computers as tools for computation to a process of knowledge acquisition, storage, retrieval, linkage, analyses, and representations of health, human and other related data. Dr. Yang and his team provide technical capacity and collaborative opportunities for researchers on statistical methodology, sophisticated database design, data collection and data analysis in the areas of behavior risk factor surveillance and environmental epidemiology.

Before joining UNR, Dr. Yang worked for seven years as a Physician and Clinical Epidemiologist in Occupational Medicine, and served ten years as the Nevada State Chief Biostatistician and Director of the State Center for Health Data and Research at Nevada State Department of Health and Human Services.
