The Surveillance and Evaluation Webinar Series, hosted by the CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH), Emory Centers for Training and Technical Assistance, and NORC at the University of Chicago, shares information on program evaluation best and promising practices and describes the role of evaluation in tobacco control work. Webinars cover emerging topics in surveillance and evaluation applicable to public health professionals, particularly state surveillance and evaluation staff. This is an ongoing series that allows OSH and tobacco control surveillance and evaluation staff nationwide to share information and resources.
