Penny Black, epidemiologist at the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health, traveled to the North Carolina Office of Rural Health (NCORH) in November as part of the NOSORH Travel Scholarship program. She met with Elizabeth Frederickson and John Resendes, members of the NCORH data team, to review the North Carolina Program Performance Measure Database and discuss data collection instruments and tools used for data analysis and visualization. Black shared her expertise with Tableau as NCORH plans to participate in the NOSORH Tableau reduced pricing opportunity.

Black notes that she anticipates a long-standing and strong relationship with the NCORH as a result of participation, citing that they continue to communicate with each other on shared issues and work together to find solutions.
