The GMR is excited to announce that Sandi Htut has been funded to attend the 2018 CityMatch Leadership and Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology Conference. Sandi is the Data Analyst and Evaluation Coordinator at Franklin County Public Health.
Franklin County’s infant mortality rate is higher than both state and national averages. By attending this conference, Sandi will come away with actionable insight that will have a direct impact on her work and, in turn, the residents of Franklin County, Ohio.
For example, Franklin County is experiencing an increase in opioid overdoses. Sandi plans to attend a session on opioid use and its impact on mothers and newborns. Another session, Data Visualization in Public Health Settings: A Hands-on Workshop for MCH Epidemiologists, will assist Sandi in learning new strategies for communicating complex data.
