Scholarship for PHAN’s conference available now
The EPI/GIS section of PHAN is giving back. Epidemiology, one of the core sciences of public health, is “the study of how disease spreads and can be controlled.” GIS, which has been used for public health efforts for many years, is “a system designed to let us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.”
The section would like to pay for a public health professional to attend the annual PHAN conference by awarding the cost of the registration fee. This opportunity is open to staff of local public health departments, federally qualified health centers, and Indian health centers. Please fill in the entry form by August 21st for your chance to be randomly selected, by SAS code of course.
