TOP REVIEWS FROM DATA AND HEALTH INDICATORS IN PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE
Very useful course. Calculations of age adjusted mortality rates is difficult to understand, although very useful to have the Excel sheets.
Very good instructor and learning aides. You do need to read and then watch the videos as they go quite fast with a lot of details to absorb.
Thanks for putting forth the effort to present this course. I learned quite a lot I had no idea that I didn't previously know. Thanks so much. Dr John Quincy
This was an excellent short course providing valuable resources and practice components to become more familiar with the calculations
I would definitely recommend this course. Thank you
