Health Data Literacy Training
The second Demystifying Data project (DD2) has developed two recorded webinars that are now available to download and view in your own time. Also, at least once a year the UIHI staff will hold a live-moderated version of these webinars to assist with participants’ questions and answers. Please sign up for the UIHI’s listserve to get updates on these activities in the future.
UIHI Health Data Literacy Training – Module 1: Accessing Data
As the first in a series of two training sessions focused on using health data in practice, this webinar will walk participants through the process of selecting your data from a public source and exporting it for use in Excel. An overview of other considerations when working with data such as limitations and uses of imperfect data will be included.
This training is designed for individuals with a beginner level of using health data or those with a more intermediate level of understanding who want a refresher on accessing and downloading publicly available data.

UIHI Health Data Literacy Training – Module 2: Using and Presenting Data
As the second in a series of two training sessions focused on using health data in practice, this webinar builds on the topic of accessing data from the first session. In Module 2, participants will learn how to use data output to make graphs in Excel for use in presentations or reports. Participants will also learn how to interpret the data for a grant or presentation.

Also, as a part of the first Demystifying Data project (DD1), UIHI staff developed a 1-day in-person training for health professionals at Urban Indian Health Programs to help participants gain a better understanding of public health data. The training exercises show participants how to read and use scientific reports for their work and how to use data for grant applications, program planning, presentations and advocacy. During the DD1 project period, over 80 people participated in this training at various locations across the United States. This 1-day training is no longer provided in-person but the curriculum is available to non-profit organizations upon request on a case by case review. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the curriculum or to find out more about this in-person training.
