There is still time to register for the first Rural Health Data Institute starting on September 13, 2016! The Rural Health Data Institute is an online training opportunity designed to provide all SORH staff with a minimum data-use skill set. To accomplish this, the curriculum is designed over eight two-hour sessions meeting every other Tuesday through December 20 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm Eastern.
The eight sessions are intended to assist novice data users in identifying a question, collecting and organizing data, analyzing and interpreting data sets, selecting appropriate messaging, and developing data visualizations. Throughout the course, participants will work through each step to develop a final visualization that is relevant to their office and can be used within their state.
To kick off the Rural Health Data Institute, several SORHs will be presenting at the NOSORH Annual Meeting in Boston on September 7-8 to showcase the work being done in their states with data and data visualization. Those signed up to participate in the Rural Health Data Institute are strongly encouraged to attend this session to gain a better understanding of how data can be incorporated into their daily tasks.
Registration for the Rural Health Data Institute is open to SORHs only, but the number of seats are limited. You can register for the Rural Health Data Institute here. The deadline to register is August 12.
