Summer School - Health Systems and Prevention
Data-Driven Policy in Public Health
Date: 19-30 August 2019
In this summer school researchers in public health from all over the world will enhance their expertise on comparative health system analysis. In particular, we deal with the organisational challenges provided by the stronger shift toward prevention in combating chronic diseases and view alternative options for reducing health inequalities. All modes of comparative analysis will be data-driven. The programme will be adjusted to your level in statistics, so students from all statistical backgrounds are welcome!
The summer school is taught by experts of the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health based in Groningen, and combines lectures with active learning modules that bring the learned theory into practice. To this end, we encourage students to present their own work during peer-topeer review sessions and we provide hands-on research sessions.
