Reminder: Registration for Rate Stabilizing Tool training
The Rate Stabilizing Tool (RST) is an ArcGIS-based tool that enables users to input their own data to generate reliable, local-level, age-standardized measures of chronic disease or other population health outcomes. The RST is especially useful for estimating population health measures when the population or number of events is small. 

Participants will learn to use the tool with data; generate results; and interpret/map them. The training will provide all of the materials participants need to replicate or work along in real time. Registration is limited to 25 state and local health department professionals and is first-come, first-served. 

  • Tuesday, June 18, 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET. Registration opens June 4 at 2 p.m. ET.
  • Tuesday, June 25, 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET. Registration opens June 11 at 2 p.m. ET.
