Using Data to Understand the Community You Serve

Are you or would you like to be using data in your work to understand and improve the communities you serve? Do you want to know more about about the opportunities you have to make data-driven decisions for your constituents' well-being, and to monitor your community's progress? Are you interested in sharing your experiences and needs with other Extension professionals?

If so, join us for a virtual chat on Thursday, December 10, 2020, from 1pm to 2pm EST.  Our team is preparing an eFieldBook about using data for Extension professionals, and we invite you to participate in this interactive discussion that will help us tailor the publication for you. We will be talking about the importance of data, barriers to data use that you might be facing and how to overcome them, and about portals, dashboards, and other resources that can get you started quickly. Come share your thoughts with us and fellow Extension professionals, and then look out for a helpful publication coming next summer!

The chat will be led and moderated by Teja Pristavec (University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute) and Mike Lambur (Virginia Tech / Virginia Cooperative Extension).
