Caregiver Job Opportunity

I am almost 40 year old with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, respiratory disease and autoimmune disease, and receive PCA services 24 hours a day. I am seeking additional fun, outgoing and responsible gals to join my team of caregivers! This is a very COVID safe job and I provide PPE for necessary purposes. I am dependent on my PCAs for anything and everything throughout the day. I work from home as a covid contact tracer, enjoy music, comedy, fashion, traveling, being outside in the summer, pizza, pasta and Starbucks. Due to covid, I am in isolation until society is safe for me to go into places. I live close to the Aveda Institute in Northeast Minneapolis. No experience is needed as personalized training is provided and it is a really great opportunity for students! $125-250 cash bonuses are available after 30-45-days of good job performance, and potentially a $500 stipend after 90-days.

These data are big, messy and complex, which require rigorous and efficient methods for analysis. They will demonstrate the power of statistical modeling in biomedical “big data”, and how the methods can make an impact on public health and clinical research.
