USING DATA TO MOVE FORWARD
Moderator: Chongyi Wei, PhD, UCSF
You’ll hear in Monday’s plenary about Big Data – national data sets that can be analyzed, presented and integrated into tech projects for our public health. These local projects use data too – The MPowerment project uses data from its in-person programs to inform its online practice; HANC talks about use of electronic behavioral data collection around sexual activity; and Sexual Health Rankings created an indicator to showcase the sexual health and wellness of communities in the U.S.
