On Tuesday, November 18, 2008, the Health Professions Library will offer an exciting opportunity for students to learn more about health data resources available through the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH).
The DOHMH has lots of health data about New York–and New Yorkers–that they would like to share. Shannon Farley, a researcher with the Bureau of Epidemiology Services, will be coming to the Brookdale Campus to introduce these resources to Hunter students. This workshop will be ideal for students in programs such as urban public health, community health, environmental and occupational health, or public health nursing–as well as anyone else who has ever wondered where to find NYC-specific health data. Health professions students preparing for their research/capstone projects (Masters Integrative Project) might find this class especially useful.
The class will be held in the main computer lab of the Health Professions Library from 6pm to 8pm on November 18. It isn’t necessary to register or sign up for the class, but please bear in mind that space is limited.
In the meantime, don’t forget about these other NYC-specific sources of statistical information already available through the Health Professions Library’s Web site!
