Hi Professor Lockhart,

This is from Wei. I got this message and thought it may be of any interest to your graduates. Could you pass around this information around your department?



Hello Wei,
I am just following up with you to see if you are aware of anyone else who may be a possible viable candidate for the Sr. Biostatistician role with OptumRx.  I understand that you have already taken another position so you are no longer personally interested.  I would very much appreciate it if you are able to let me know of anyone else who could be a candidate.  Thank you very much!
