Characterizing the "Health" of Communities through the application of Social Science Data Sets: Linking populations and health part of SSDAN:Activities
In this graduate course, participants develop, design and write a competitive individual proposal in response to a published funding opportunity. Students will provide descriptive, quantitative and qualitative data about the nature of a public health problem, condition or a clinical research topic. Students must integrate information from a variety of sources and develop a research strategy or approach to address the identified issues. Students submit a full proposal in compliance with the funding opportunity's format at the end of the class. Course materials include a detailed description of typical proposal formats. We address the scientific writing process throughout the course using the assigned texts, class exercises and homework, provided resource materials, and handouts.
