This national program is aimed primarily at professionals in state and local health agencies who have significant responsibility for collecting, processing, analyzing, and reporting maternal and child health data. This year, the course is geared to individuals with basic to intermediate skills in statistical and epidemiologic methods, preferably in MCH or a related field. Please note that we will only consider applicants who work domestically and regularly analyze data rather manage programs.
If you have intermediate to advanced skills and regularly apply regression analysis, we welcome you to apply to next years’ course and review course materials from the 2016 intermediate to advanced course with the archive links listed at the top right.
