Epidemiology Work Group Training

The use of community, county, and state-level data is important to effectively serve local communities and allocate resources. The Arizona Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group (Epi Work Group), under the direction of the Governor Ducey’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family and in partnership with Arizona State University Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center, has developed curriculum and training modules designed to introduce participants to the Community Data Project (CDP) and other data to empower them to conduct needs assessments, write grant applications, substantiate best practices, inform the public, and design effective programming evaluations.

Using the CDP and additional substance abuse related websites, this training will introduce participants to data elements, risk and protective factors, and other basic statistical measures. Each training will provide participants with an opportunity to actively engage and process the information and materials in a cooperative group environment.
