Project Summary

Public Health Department Information Workflow

I am involved in several projects using detailed qualitative ethnographic methods (interviews, focus groups, and observations) to investigate the information workflow of public health activities of local health departments throughout the Northwest. Areas of local public health practice research have included communicable disease reporting, emergency preparedness, business continuity planning, chronic disease prevention and the creation of health education materials.
