My name is Rick Pack and I am a data scientist who currently works in the healthcare industry (posts in this blog are mine and not my employer) supporting business analyses as well as accountable care organizations in a value-based healthcare initiative. I have a Master’s of Applied Statistics from Penn State University. My goal with most posts is to preserve and instruct what I learn about the use of R and other software including SAS and Alteryx. Population health may become more of a focus.
My Twitter handle is @rick_pack2.

I am currently mentoring youth through the 100 Black Men of Triangle East non-profit and have volunteered in the Big Brothers / Big Sisters program as well as the Raleigh St. Ambrose Episcopal Church chess mentorship program. I have presented at TriPASS Data Science meetings and attended those coordinated by the Research Triangle Analysts.
As of 2019, I am on the board of TriPASS and the Research Triangle Analysts.
I am grateful for my wife, Ryan Pack, a talented business woman, and our dog, Molly the goldendoodle.
