Join us for an engaging Public Health Datathon focused on indicators in the North East of England!

Are you a local officer or an analyst interested in public health?

Insights North East is delighted to invite you to participate in an engaging Public Health Datathon focused on indicators in the North East of England! This event is designed to empower local officers in constructing indicators and using data visualisation tools to uncover crucial public health insights. Our objectives encompass exploring analytical frameworks for public health indicators, facilitating discussions on data and evidence, promoting knowledge exchange on visualisation tools, and fostering connections among regional officers.

The agenda features a stimulating debate on public health indicators and a hands-on workshop on data visualisation with Power BI. Participants might also bring their own datasets to get support with analysis and visualisation.
