Innovations in Federal Surveys to Assess the Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Children & Families. Year Developed: 2022. Source: Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Michael Kogan, Reem Ghandour, Jessica Jones, Anika Schenck-Fontaine, & Olivia Sappenfield. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 74. minutes.

Annotation: Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruptions in the lives of U.S. children and their families, including their health, health care access, receipt of intervention and other services, education, and child care arrangements. Accordingly, HRSA MCHB has taken steps to ensure that public health programs are prepared to meet these challenges and that researchers have access to relevant data. This symposium provides participants with an overview of resources for both immediate and long-term analytic needs. Specifically, this session presents three projects to collect data on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and their families: The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), a new longitudinal cohort study of past NSCH respondents to launch in 2023, and the results of MCHB-sponsored content included in the Census Bureau’s weekly Household Pulse Survey.

Learning Objectives: • Discuss overviews of three projects to collect data on the impacts of COVID-19 on children and families. • Learn survey content and how to access survey data. • Review relevant timelines of data availability.

Ensuring the Data System Used for Public Health Centers Equity and Well-Being. Year Developed: 2022. Source: Mathematica. Presenter(s): Dawn Heisey-Grove, Alastair Matheson, Alonzo Plough, Artair Rogers, Vivian Singletary, Deliya Banda Wesley. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: 90 minutes.

Annotation: Efforts are underway to reimagine and transform the data system used in public health so it doesn’t just identify, manage, and respond to disease—it also promotes holistic well-being. Plans for modernizing the public health data system must ensure that it supports a complete picture of all the communities affected by poor health outcomes—as well as the underlying reasons those communities are affected—to inform efforts to advance health equity. Doing so requires a data system that includes upstream influences on health, such as social determinants of health and the policies and systems that perpetuate inequities. It coordinates across public and private sectors. It is inclusive in terms of how and by whom the data are collected, analyzed, and interpreted, and it centers community involvement throughout the data life cycle. This virtual discussion includes experts who are leading efforts across the United States to reimagine public health data to become more effective at promoting the public’s health and addressing root causes of health inequities. These perspectives range across the sectors involved in generating, shaping, and interpreting public health data including philanthropy, local public health agencies, technology, and community-based organizations. The gathered experts will share their experience and vision for transforming the public health data system.

Learning Objectives: • Learn how public health data can be effective at promoting the public's health and addressing root causes of health equity • Learn multiple perspectives for transforming the public health data system

Tools for Data-Powered Discovery: NLM's Data Discovery and Pillbox. Year Developed: 2019. Source: National Library of Medicine. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: n.a..

Annotation: As the National Library of Medicine transitions to become a platform for biomedical discovery and data-powered health, one area of focus is building a workforce for data-driven research and health. In support of this strategic goal, NLM launched Data Discovery, an online platform for making data findable, interoperable, accessible, and reusable (the FAIR principles). In addition to browser-based exploration, filtering, and visualization of data, Data Discovery includes Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to help researchers and developers build applications that leverage its datasets. Pillbox, NLM’s pill identification and reference resource, long overdue for redesign, was rebuilt using Data Discovery as its foundation to showcase the power of this platform. This session: 1) provides a brief history of these efforts as they relate to NLM’s 2017-2027 Strategic Plan, 2) demonstrates how to explore, filter, and create visualizations using NLM datasets hosted on Data Discovery, and 3) demonstrates the redesigned Pillbox website and illustrate how hosting its data on Data Discovery empowers users without disrupting the traditional web application experience.

Learning Objectives: • Recognize featured NLM resource. • Know how to locate the specific resource featured. • Explain to others when to use the featured resource.
