Program Evaluation and Program Improvement: Challenges, Opportunities, and New Directions at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Slides from SI10 Keynote 1 from Janet Collins 

06-21-2010 10:36

Session Description: In 1999, with the publication of its Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health, CDC signaled its desire to increase the quality of program evaluation and use of evaluation findings for program improvement. Great strides have been made in program evaluation of public health in the decade that followed. And recently, with the creation of the new Associate Director for Program office, CDC has a focal point for extending and improving performance measurement and evaluation of its efforts. Still, challenges remain. Dr. Collins will talk about the challenges of program evaluation in public health and at CDC, some of the opportunities for increasing the leverage and impact of program evaluation and performance measurement, and some key current initiatives and new directions being pursued at CDC as examples of how one large organization can effectively employ performance measurement and program evaluation for program improvement.

Janet Collins is Associate Director for Program in the Office of the Director, CDC. She joined CDC in 1990 as Chief of the Surveillance and Evaluation Research Branch in the Division of Adolescent and School Health, and, for the past four years, served as Director of CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, directing a diverse portfolio of programmatic and scientific initiatives across ten Divisions. Dr. Collins is a respected voice in program evaluation with the public health community; she earned her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Stanford University.

the reason that every person is suffering due to all kind of
natural calamaties in the world. God's messages posted in the

Holy Bible says:

There fore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves".
- Matthew 10:16.
2."Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution he will come to save you". - Isaiah 35:4
Holy Quran says:
28:59. Nor was thy Lord the one
To destroy a population until
He had sent to its Centre
An apostle, rehearsing to them
Our Signs; nor are We
Going to destroy a population
Except when its members
Practice iniquity.
Our website http://www.goldenduas.com contains more information not only

changes (heavy snow, rain, heat etc),and to cause unity and peace all
over the world. Our service all
