We all have stories about how injury or disease has impacted our lives or the lives of people we know and love. Stories about health and wellness, and about injury and disease can also be told through numbers. Through a mixture of lectures and hands-on learning, this course will provide an overview of how data stories play a critical role in public health. We will discuss how data has been used historically to inform public health action and will also explore current applications, including outbreaks of infectious and non-infectious disease. Through disease “detective work”, we will examine how the stories told through data can prevent illness and ultimately reduce the impact of disease in our communities and around the world.
