Don't Wait to Participate in AIRA's Epi Shared Services!

AIRA is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the Epidemiology Shared Services (ESS) initiative to support new hire onboarding, training, and advancement of data analysis skills among immunization information system (IIS) data analysts and epidemiologists. ESS is a resource for those who extract, analyze, interpret, visualize, report out, or interact with IIS data.

ESS has five initiatives coming in 2022:

  1. A crowd-sourced code library
  2. Data visualization, technical, and other relevant trainings
  3. A mini-series designed to increase community sharing and learning around IIS data analyst topics
  4. An informal network of IIS data analyst peers to provide support to one another
  5. Tailored technical assistance for IIS

These initiatives are designed to increase support and skills for data analysts in the IIS community. All levels of experience are encouraged to participate! To participate in one or more of the ESS initiatives, fill out the AIRA Epi Shared Services interest form or email [email protected] with the name of the offering(s) in the subject line. For example, “ESS: Epi Connect and Code Library.” We hope to see you and your data analyst colleagues at a future ESS event!
