CFD 261: Exploring Patterns in Your Data Using Cluster Analysis - Aundrea DeShawn Carter and Kristy Kenney

Thursday September 8th, 2016 2:00 -2:20 PM 

Cluster analysis is an exploratory statistical technique that can be used as an evaluation tool for identifying patterns in your data. The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provides breast and cervical cancer screening to low income, un- and under-insured women through a network of grantees representing all 50 states, D.C. and 16 tribal and territorial organizations. CDC collected annual survey data from these grantees to identify programmatic activities across all 67 grantees. Utilizing cluster analysis allowed CDC to explore patterns of activities across the program. This presentation will provide an overview of cluster analysis methods and demonstrate how results can be used for program improvement and planning, using the NBCCEDP example.

We’ll explore tips for how to manage the (huge!) conference program and benefit even from those sessions you can’t attend, how to build your professional network, how to move forward if you’re looking for a new position, how to get more actively involved with the association, AND how to have a great time while you’re in town!

This webinar will not only describe the programs and services available to you, but also concrete ways to maximize the value (including fun!) you will take away from the event. Questions are always welcome at the end of the webinar!

CFB : Supercharge Your Focus Groups: Using Adult Facilitation Techniques to Capture Rich Data - Lynne Franco

Thursday September 22nd, 2016 2-2:20 PM 

Focus groups have the potential to generate rich data for evaluation. The adult facilitation and learning literature has established techniques to guide participants to meaningful conversations, while ensuring a comfortable, dynamic, and fun environment. Drawing on these techniques, this coffee break will discuss methods that can be used to generate rich and meaningful data in group settings of 5 people or 50, and can draw out perspectives and foster group processing of data.
