Please join us for an engaging and informative discussion with a group of expert panelists from Yale and the wider community as we consider how population data influences public health!
The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library and the Institution for Social and Policy Studies are hosting:
What happens to community health when data is compromised? A discussion panel on the 2020 Census and other survey data
February 27th, noon
Medical Historical Library, Yale School of Medicine, 333 Cedar St.
Public health researchers and policymakers rely on accurate, representative population data to make informed decisions. This panel of researchers, experts, and activists will discuss how proposed changes in the 2020 Census could discourage participation, jeopardizing access to comprehensive population data. The panelists will explore the potential impacts to community health when essential data is lost or compromised.
