Healthy Places NC Training Series
This Healthy Places North Carolina (HPNC) eLearning series is designed for audiences with minimal background in public health data. While many of the examples will be from the HPNC initiative, anyone interested in data would benefit from participating. The training series is made up of three modules, each with two to four, 10-30 minute self-guided and interactive trainings. Module 1 covers basic data concepts such as commonly used data measures and how to evaluate data reliability. Module 2 describes how to access and evaluate data while Module 3 introduces some basic concepts on how to collect your own data through surveys. These eLearns are also pre-requisite coursework for an exciting new FREE series launching in January 2022: Data for Impact – HPNC Webinar Series.

The HPNC Data for Impact Webinar Series is designed for those who want to strengthen or expand their background in collecting and analyzing population health data in support of healthy thriving communities. While many of the examples will be from the HPNC initiative, anyone interested in data would benefit from participating. These interactive webinars will apply lessons learned through small-group exercises, giving participants opportunities to interact and learn from their peers. This series is free to anyone who wants to sign-up and appropriate for all knowledge and data skill-levels, however we do request that you complete the required prerequisite eLearns to establish a baseline foundation in public health data.
This two-part webinar series picks up where the HPNC Data Foundations eLearns left off. In Day 1 we’ll dive deeper into survey design, sampling methods, modes of data collection, and practical tips for conducting your survey. Day 2 will focus on survey data management and analysis, mapping, and visualizing community conditions, including social determinants of health.
