Data Detectives (CADCA)
Numbers can be overwhelming and make your head spin. It doesn’t have to be that way. Evaluating data properly can help lead you in the right direction. CADCA can help you become an “everyday scientist” and demystify data gathering. During the hour-long show Data Detectives learn how to investigate your local conditions to find the indicators you need to make positive change. Find out what sources of credible local data are readily available. See how data can help you define your substance abuse problems, select strategies and prove your effectiveness. Master the art of using data to tell a story in the community and grow your coalition. Learn how to avoid data overload. We’ll visit Branson, MO where a coalition’s community assessment told them they had to do something about alcohol density. They did, and the results have been great. Hear what they did and how they did it.
