Using CDC data in mental health reporting

From DarrenHester on Morguefile

Poynter is offering a free webinar to show journalists how they can use CDC-maintained public databases to learn how to use them to access national-, state- and county-level injury and death data, including deaths by suicide, gun violence and more.

“Acquiring basic skills in these databases will allow you to quickly supply valuable context for a wide range of news, including stories on breaking news, public policy, community initiatives and fact checks.”

The 90-minute webinar is on Aug. 30.
