Greetings from Burlington,


I am a new member of epidata-list, and I am keen to receive advice about
incorporating training in EpiData Entry and Analyst in the MPH Program at
the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the Univ. of Toronto. I teach the
course on Public Health Surveillance in the second term. This will be the
second year that I oversee this course, and I would like to find some better
way to integrate the lectures and the exercises, perhaps through EpiData
training. I suspect that EpiData would be ideal for introducing the
principles and basic skills required for CD outbreak detection and
management. But I think it might also be useful for cluster investigation,
socio-demographic profiles (e.g., recent immigrants in a PHU area) and
monitoring behavioural RF over time.


Keen to hook up with epidata-list members who have some experience offering
training in EpiData at the MPH level. Keen to find useful teaching exercises
that are shareable, too. 


Most grateful for any advice!
