New charts, graphs, and maps are available online!
Last fall, Sheps Health Workforce NC launched a new blog and Twitter feed (@WorkforceNC) to share research findings, charts, and data in an engaging and digestible format. The blog features charts, graphics, and maps with a few bullets to summarize key messages.
“The idea is to share what we are working on in an engaging, easily accessible format,” said Evan Galloway, data visualization analyst. “We’re excited to have a way to get relevant information out quickly, so our audience has it when they need it.”
Recent blog posts include:
- Aging of the Physician Workforce
- Tracking the Workforce Outcomes of NC Medical Schools Five Years after Graduation: Class of 2012
- NC’s Dentist Workforce Has Grown, but Only in Well-Supplied Counties
The blog is a way for Sheps Health Workforce NC to add to the conversation about health workforce issues under discussion in state government, in the health care sector, and the news.
