Excel and Communicating Public Health Data
This SLP consists of two parts:
Part I: Return to the Health Literacy Education site at http://www.cdc.gov/healthliteracy/findtraining/onlinecourse.html and complete the training for “Creating Easier to Understand Lists, Charts, and Graphs” course. Once you are at this site, select the course from the list of available courses in the left-hand column.
Complete the evaluation at the end, select “Print Certificate” and submit it to meet the requirements for Part I of your SLP assignment.
Part II: You will apply the concepts you learned from the online CDC course by making a chart or table.
To meet the requirement for Part II, create a simple illustration of the data you worked with in your Case 3 assignment. Options include a pie chart, table, or bar chart illustrating the data you worked with in your Case 3 assignment, and the display should be chosen based on what you learned about creating lists, charts, and graphs for public health communication. You may choose to use the Obesity data or the custom data you generated in Case 3 to make the visual illustration.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Create your chart, table, or graph in Excel, and then copy and paste it into a PowerPoint slide. Use the PowerPoint formatting and text tools to include a title and any other important information on your slide. Submit both the certification of completion of the CDC course, and your PowerPoint slide to your SLP dropbox by the module due date.
