The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study is the largest and most comprehensive scientific effort to measure epidemiological levels and trends worldwide. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) is hosting a workshop to train learners interested in the data, methods, findings, and implications of the GBD study.
This workshop aims to help introductory-level learners of the GBD develop mastery and greater fluency in GBD methods, tools, and data. This workshop provides both a breadth and depth of exploration and hands-on learning about key aspects of the GBD study, including its analytical methods, data sources, visualization tools, and policy implications. This workshop cultivates connections, knowledge sharing, discourse, and debate with an audience of engaged practitioners and collaborators. Training sessions intend to promote debate, discussion, and an open exchange of ideas.
