The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP) has announced three new free trainings which support public health professionals in using data to address health disparities. The three trainings are called, “Understanding Population Health Concepts,” Communicating Effectively,” and “Visualizing Data Stories.” Register today.
We are excited to announce three new trainings are available for free to support public health professionals in using data to address health disparities.
The trainings can help public health professionals better understand and describe health equity, identify health disparities using data, and create data-centered presentations to communicate with decision makers in the community and/or local government about the need to address health inequities. These steps can be an essential part of gathering support and moving efforts forward within their organization and/or community.
The three trainings listed below are part of part of a five-year, collaborative project with public health professionals in the Pacific Northwest. The project is known as Solutions in Health Analytics for Rural Equity across the Northwest (SHARE-NW). While these trainings were developed with and for those serving rural communities, the trainings can support a wide variety of public health professionals.
