Innovative Data and Approaches in Maternal and Child Health
Sunday, June 9, 2013: 8:30 AM-3:00 PM
103 (Pasadena Convention Center)
CSTE, in collaboration with CDC, is hosting a symposium that will spotlight current innovations in the use of data by Maternal and Child Health (MCH) epidemiologists. Rapid and ongoing changes in MCH programs and policy at the federal, state, and local level are challenging MCH epidemiologists to apply new approaches and uses of data. The first two sessions will provide examples from the field of using linked data and innovative methodological approaches to increase the information available for making program and policy decisions. The third session will feature novel data and approaches with Dr. Michael Kramer, Emory University, presenting on the creation of Georgia’s 13-year longitudinal maternal linked file, and its application to life course research.

These sessions are targeted to state, local, and tribal epidemiologists who are involved with developing information for guiding program and policy decisions, and while examples will be MCH focused, the data sources and approaches translate across multiple topic areas.
