Join staff from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research’s Health DATA Program on May 21 in South Los Angeles and May 22 in Bakersfield, Calif., for a no-cost, workshop and learn how power up your health program planning and policy advocacy with data from the California Health Survey. Participants will learn how to formulate data questions, build queries, graph and export data and interpret results via the easy-to-use AskCHIS online web tool.
AskCHIS enables you to search for health statistics using data from on your county, region or statewide. Users will be able to watch the trainer via a live video feed, use the AskCHIS system and ask questions while the training is in progress. A computer, Internet access and a telephone are required.
Prior to the training, registered participants will indicate which health topics are of primary interest to them including, but not limited to, obesity, health care access and mental health. The trainer will incorporate several of these preferred topics into the workshop to ensure participants finish the training with relevant health information regarding their communities.
