-Research question formulation
-Strengths and limitations of commonly-used population-based data sources
-Stakeholder engagement throughout the research process

Workshop Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop participants will have acquired a big-picture understanding of the field of population health sciences, and will be well-prepared for more in-depth workshops offered by the PHS virtual Summer Institute.

Recommended Audience: Undergraduate and graduate students, fellows, residents, trainees, program or research staff, and scientists interested in learning more about population health sciences.

Class Size: No Limit
