Especially for grant professionals in the health and social services sector, this workshop hosted by the Grant Professionals Association features data experts from the UCLA Health Forecasting Project sharing tools and resources as they look into the future to see what Greater Los Angeles looks like in the future and what community needs will be.
What is the UCLA Health Forecasting Project? A fascinating program that supports comprehensive data- driven decision making to improve health through rigorous health forecasting. With over a decade of experience, they combine innovative modeling techniques with historical trends to provide short- and long-term health forecasts. They simulate a wide array of topics affecting health, including shifting demographics such as the aging population.
How can these forecasts add value to your work? Cities, hospitals, community groups, health and planning departments can use the forecasts to prioritize resources by identifying high- risk subgroups with the greatest potential for investment impact; strengthen grantwriting by describing and validating anticipated health outcomes; and assess long-term health needs.
Cost: Free for Chapter Members/$10 for all others
