About this Program
JUNE 7 – 18, 2021
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all 2021 Summer Institute courses will be offered in a distance-learning, remote format.
The Data to Policy in Population, Family and Reproductive Health Summer Institute is designed to equip students with skills needed to understand population-based data and shape policies related to families, reproductive health, and the health of populations.
Course information is available on the Courses and Schedule page and our expert instructors are listed on the Faculty page. Please go to the Registration page to enroll in courses. Cost information can be found in the Tuition section below.
The Institute is structured around the public health cycle of assessing health and health determinants, developing policy to respond to identified health needs, and assuring that implemented policies achieve their purpose through evaluation. All courses focus on using data to drive decisions and actions at each point in this public health cycle. Institute participants can select training in methods that range from laboratory methods and statistical analysis of population health indicators to community organizing and participatory program evaluation. Courses are one to three credits and offered in short, compact formats suited for non-degree seeking students.
"Passionate instructors with real-world experience in the course material who also brought in guest lecturers from other specialties to expand what the course covered."
"The lectures were jam-packed with very interesting content, and I learned so much about global family planning policies and programs. I think the course was organized very well, and their expectations were made clear."
