NAO Lecture: Neil Seeman
As part of the North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO) Lecture Series we welcome Neil Seeman on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 12:00 PM in HS-740 (Health Sciences Building, 155 College Street, Toronto). This event is free of charge and open to anyone. Forward it to a friend who might be interested.
Neil will discuss examples from his data collection work in low-, middle-, and high-income nations, including:
- Monitoring trust in health officials in China during the COVID-19 outbreak and in other public health crises;
- Harvard research measuring expectations of healthcare quality in low- and middle-income countries; and
- How new models of data collection extend to measuring diverse ‘sensitive topics’ for which we have limited or flawed data in public health and policy, such as changing attitudes toward stigmatized populations.
Neil will engage audience members to explore what could now be possible to measure not only in Canada and the United States where the vast majority are online, but also in the rest of the world. What research and public health questions can we answer now in the era of Big Data that we couldn’t answer or answer as well before?
This event is free of charge an open to anyone. Forward it to a friend who might be interested.
