Recent advances in technology have simplified the creation, collection, storage, and analysis of health care data. However, researchers and clinicians are still working to realize the potential of this data.

The UNC Program on Health and Clinical Informatics, NC TraCS Institute, and Program for Precision Medicine in Health Care are presenting a seminar series in May 2023 that will provide an introduction to working with electronic health care data.

Each Wednesday from May 10 through May 31, 2023 features a presentation from 2:30-4:00 p.m., followed by an in-person Q&A on your research project with NC TraCS analysts from 4:00-4:30 p.m.
