TOP REVIEWS FROM DATA AND HEALTH INDICATORS IN PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE
I think the last week's module was by far the most helpful. Although the first three weeks were useful, the fourth week made it worth my time.
This course is an eye opener to public health experts who operate as jack-of-all-trade,especially on the department od disease surveillance. so wonderful.
Very useful course. Calculations of age adjusted mortality rates is difficult to understand, although very useful to have the Excel sheets.
I learned a lot of good things, but I think there are typos that I should be fixed.
For example, a table was missing from one of the final quiz questions.
