Policy Surveillance Program 2018 Summer Institute

7 - 8
All Day

Join us for the Policy Surveillance Program’s 3rd annual Summer Institute, hosted by the Temple University Center for Public Health Law Research.

The 2018 Summer Institute will teach public health law research methods, with a focus on policy surveillance and scientific legal mapping, during a two-day intensive training at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Policy surveillance tracks public health laws and policies over time and across jurisdictions, using a rigorous scientific process to create data for evaluation and empirical research. The Institute will consist of two tracks, introductory and advanced. The introductory track is intended for participants who are interested in learning the steps of the policy surveillance process, while the advanced track is intended for participants who are already familiar with the steps of the policy surveillance process and would like to learn the techniques and tools needed to manage a policy surveillance project. 

Participants will:

  • Learn the policy surveillance process from start to finish.
  • Receive hands-on training in introductory and advanced methods from expert legal researchers during and after the institute.
  • Network with other attendees from diverse professional backgrounds from across the country.

The training is open to practitioners, policymakers, researchers and students.

WHEN: June 7-8, 2018

WHERE: Temple's Main Campus, building TBD


Note: Registration deadline is May 1.
