Reminder: Registration for Rate Stabilizing Tool training
The Rate Stabilizing Tool (RST) is an ArcGIS-based tool that enables users to input their own data to generate reliable, local-level, age-standardized measures of chronic disease or other population health outcomes. The RST is especially useful for estimating population health measures when the population or number of events is small. 
Participants will learn to use the tool with data; generate results; and interpret/map them. The training will provide all of the materials participants need to replicate or work along in real time. Registration is limited to 25 state and local health department professionals and is first-come, first-served. 
  • Tuesday, June 18, 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET. Registration opens June 4 at 2 p.m. ET.
  • Tuesday, June 25, 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET. Registration opens June 11 at 2 p.m. ET.
Please contact Joshua Tootoo, with any questions. Visit NACDD's GIS webpage for additional GIS opportunities.  

From Food Policy Review and Intervention Cost-Effectiveness Researchers at Wake Forest University
Seeking CVD State Health Department staff to complete survey
Food Policy Review and Intervention Cost-Effectiveness (Food-PRICE) researchers are a group of collaborative researchers across the U.S. and Europe working to identify the strategies that can have the greatest impact on improving the health of Americans. Their mission is to improve the health of the U.S. population through improved diets and their research focuses on population-level nutrition strategies and the relation of those strategies to cardiovascular and cancer health outcomes. This survey seeks to gain insight into the impact various strategies may have, and responses are invaluable to research into which strategies to pursue. The Food-PRICE researchers greatly appreciate your time in responding to the survey.
As the beginning of the survey will indicate, a respondent may start the survey, leave it, and then return to the survey on the same computer within 72 hours and pick up where he/she left off. The survey should be completed by the end of June. Click here to begin the survey.
