This FAES course demonstrates and practices the use of R in creating and presenting data visualizations. After a short introduction to R tools, especially the tidyverse packages, the course covers principles for data visualization, examples of good and bad visualizations, and the use of ggplot2 to create static publication-quality graphs. Students also have the chance to learn about modern web-based interactive graphics using the html widgets packages as well as dynamic graphics and dashboards that can be created using flexdashboard and Shiny. The course explores ways in which bioinformatics data can be presented using static and dynamic visualizations. Finally, RMarkdown and other packages are used to develop webpages for presenting data visualizations as self-explanatory and possibly interactive storyboards.

In this Methods: Mind the Gap presentation, Dr. Jeffrey Sparks illustrates how epidemiologic and patient-oriented research studies can further the understanding of etiology and outcomes of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a common chronic disease. Different study designs are needed to investigate different types of exposures and outcomes. This presentation discusses studies related to lifestyle factors, genetics, biomarkers, comorbid conditions for RA risk, and outcomes, focusing in particular on how inflammation in the lung may be a nidus for both RA onset and worsened clinical outcomes.

The objective of this FAES Graduate School is to provide a deeper understanding of epidemiologic research methodology that can be used to interpret critically the results of epidemiologic research. This understanding is the result of investigating conceptual models for study designs, disease frequency, measures of association and impact, imprecision, bias, and effect modification. The course emphasizes the interpretation of research, even when the design or execution of the respective research is less than ideal.

On May 23, 2019, NCCOR hosted a Connect & Explore webinar to discuss the findings in a recent publication from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service called “Linking USDA Nutrition Databases to IRI Household-Based and Store-Based Scanner Data.” USDA researchers created a purchase-to-plate “crosswalk”—linking USDA data and household retail scanner data—to measure the overall healthfulness of American’s food-at-home (FAH) purchases. Results show that improvements in the healthfulness of Americans’ FAH purchases are needed to comply with federal dietary guidance. The speaker is Andrea Carlson, PhD, MS,an economist in the Food Markets Branch of the Food Economics Division.

Each year, the federal government collects, manages, and makes available considerable amounts of population health data. In this course, students gain working knowledge of databases, such as NHANES, NHIS, and MEPS, that are frequently used by public health analysts, policy makers, and researchers. The course will cover the types of variables that are included in each database. It will also discuss how the data are collected, how to retrieve the data, and how to prepare the data for statistical analysis. Using SAS or STATA, students learn how to develop appropriate research questions and analyze the data, with emphasis on data management, exploratory data analysis, regression analysis, and the interpretation of statistical analysis. Finally, students will study a series of published papers on health policy in order to understand the application of statistical methods to the field.
