Epidemiology & Evaluation Collaborative (EEC)

EEC is a group of state 1305/1422 epidemiologists and evaluators that meets monthly on the second Wednesday at 2pm ET. There are four main purposes of this group:

1. To provide CDC 13-1305 and 14-1422 epidemiologists and evaluators with a community for exchanging tips and best practices, especially related to performance measurement and surveillance


2. To improve epidemiology, evaluation, and public health surveillance capacity among CDC 13-1305 and 14-1422 funded states by enhancing opportunities for networking, information exchange, peer to peer mentoring, and training among epidemiologists and evaluators


3. To enhance communication, specifically as it relates to epidemiology and evaluation, among 13-1305 and 14-1422 programs and with other partners, especially with the Applied Research and Evaluation Branch and the Epidemiology and Surveillance Branch within the CDC’s Division of Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention


4. To provide epidemiological and evaluation expertise to the CVH Network and other NACDD groups as needed by providing an EEC member to serve on other forums or communities of practice and assisting with the Network’s evaluation activities (e.g. designing surveys, assisting in the development of evaluation plans, organizing focus groups, etc.)
