Upcoming Webinars

Using BRFSS Data for Action and Impact (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Webinar Series)

Friday, March 5, 2021
12 to 1 p.m. ET
See registration instructions above
Free for everyone

Using public health data for impact is an important way to translate data into practice. Informing policymakers, systems, and environments is important to meet the needs of older adults, their caregivers, and the systems that support them. Presenters will hear about cognitive decline data that can be translated for use in public health policies and systems.

Presented by:

  • Matthew Baumgart, Alzheimer’s Association
  • John Shean, MPH, Alzheimer’s Association

Older adults often experience multiple comorbid conditions, including issues related to cognitive decline, which can complicate their health management and quality of life. This webinar series will describe population-level data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) relevant to older adults, with an emphasis on cognitive decline and caregiving-related issues. Data collected through the BRFSS can be used to track these issues and to inform public health professionals, policymakers, and other stakeholders about important aging-related health issues. Presenters will provide concrete examples of how these data have been used and can be applied to research questions as well as to real-world problems, including how they can be used to effectively stimulate strategic changes to meet the needs of the growing proportion of older adults. This 4-part webinar series is organized by CDC, in conjunction with the GSA 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting Online.

Presented by:

  • Marcia Holstad, PhD, FNP-BC, FAANP, FAAN, Co-Director, Emory CFAR HIV and Aging Scientific Working Group; Emory Co-Lead, NIH Inter CFAR HIV and Aging Working Group
