Epidemiology and Surveillance Interest Group

Learning and networking opportunity for epidemiologists and public health surveillance professionals.

In June 2023, NACDD launched the Epidemiology and Surveillance Interest Group (E/SIG) tailored for state health department practitioners. The E/SIG is designed to meet the needs of state-level chronic disease epidemiologists and public health surveillance professionals beyond routine grant-related activities.

The E/SIG promotes knowledge sharing, networking, and exposure to a variety of topics and methodologies outside of daily work. Some key areas of interest include:

  • Measuring social determinants of health
  • Assessing program impact on health equity
  • Quantifying special populations
  • Identifying best practices for measuring demographics (e.g., gender, sexual orientation,
  • Enhancing chronic disease surveillance with clinical data
  • Using mapping in chronic disease surveillance
  • Providing local estimates, especially in rural geographies

Join us on the second Tuesday of each month at 12-1 p.m. CT/1-2 p.m. ET for engaging discussions and expert-led sessions.
