Event Details


Data have the potential to change the way we prevent, treat, and manage a broad range of public health issues. Because of this, it’s vital that the data we use to inform decisions about public health truly reflect the populations we seek to serve.

This webinar, “Data Science to Power Implementation with Social Determinants of Health (SDOH),” examines the importance of data in examining diverse and underserved populations. Data scientists, clinical researchers, public health professionals, and others are encouraged to attend.

A broad range of topics will be discussed, using real-world examples, including the importance of multidisciplinary research and collaboration in data science, translation of findings into clinical practice, and digital health.

By the close of the event, participants will be able to:

  • describe data sources for generating real-time evidence.
  • quantify the impact of SDOH on the pandemic and vaccination rollout.
  • identify and address disparities in data.
  • understand the role and regulations in using digital health.
  • promote data science in education programs.

This conference is supported by grant 1 R13 TR003552-01 from NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). For more information about this event, visit the conference website.
