Statistical Workshop on Tracking Health Indicators – CDC in partnership with USMBHC

The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics has developed a 2-day “Statistical Workshop” designed to assist state, local, health-related NGO staff, and members of the academic community in understanding the issues related to tracking public health indicators, such as the Healthy People 2010 objectives.

The workshop was first presented in Tucson, Arizona in April 2002 to a multi-disciplinary audience from the U.S.-Mexico Border Health Commission, and has since been presented in other settings. The workshop is general in scope, and addresses issues that are applicable to staff working in a wide variety of public health settings and early researchers interested in pursuing a public health research agenda. The course also provides insight into the deliberations and challenges encountered in producing data for a national, comprehensive health initiative.

The Workshop will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, March 24 and 25, 2004 at Corbett Center at the campus of New Mexico State University for invited participants.
