The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research’s Health DATA Program invites you to register for our Introduction to AskCHIS Workshop in Fresno, CA on February 25, 2014. This free in-person workshop will teach users how to locate and analyze health data for Central Valley counties while providing an overview of general functions in AskCHIS, the online query tool for the California Health Interview Survey. This training is designed for introductory data users or those that have not frequently used the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data before. Those who are looking for exposure to online data systems and data for Californian households are especially encouraged to register.
During this in-person training, our staff will walk individuals through participant generated examples, teaching participants how to work with CHIS variables, generate univariate tables, and export data tables and graphs. John Capitman, the Director of the Central Valley Health Policy Institute, will be sharing practical applications of California Health Interview Survey Data and recent findings from CVHPI research projects. In-person training also provides participants the opportunity to navigate through AskCHIS in real time with the instructor to find, analyze, and export AskCHIS data for indicators of particular significance for the Central Valley. An advanced workshop will also be offered in May 2014.
5 Continuing education requirements are available through National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) for those Certified in Public Health (CPH). Register now or forward this announcement to other colleagues who would benefit from an introduction to health data and AskCHIS.
