Data Into Action Training

Data Into Action Training – 101 for Tribes/Urban Indian Program

Data into Action Training is designed to train tribal health departments on how to access and utilize available data for local level public health action. The training will fill a need for AI/AN data, and how to access available data from federal and other sources (like states) for program planning, surveillance, grant writing, etc. There is also an issue of states not recognizing the tribal epidemiology centers as public health authorities. We will address this issue and raise awareness on recognizing tribal epidemiology centers.

This project will address the need for how to find and utilize AI/AN data by building upon two data curriculums; one older curriculum designed for tribal populations and one current general 101 data training, to create an updated culturally competent data 101 training.  AAIP, through its expert consultants Dr. Janis Campbell and Amanda Janitz, will provide a one-day training to educate tribal health departments on available data sources for AI/AN data and how to use that data in grant writing and for program surveillance. AAIP will continue to work with the tribal health departments that attend the training to assist them in their specific data acquisition needs. AAIP will also address the issue of under recognition of the tribal epidemiology centers. 

The goal of this project is to increase the knowledge among tribal health departments of how to access available data from federal, state, and local resources for program planning surveillance, and data use and to increase support and awareness of tribal epidemiology centers as public health authorities. 

A one-day training, Data Into Action, will focus on using data to conduct community needs assessments in American Indian communities and provide need based data for grant opportunities. Bring your laptop for hands on training
