This month's MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series features Christian Boxley, Senior Research Associate at MedStar Health National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare. Christian will discuss "The Tableau Basics: How to Visualize COVID-19 Surveillance Data".

ABSTRACT: Finding and communicating insights from large datasets is becoming increasingly important as our ability to access and generate data continues to grow. Tableau is a data visualization software tool that can be used to explore and understand your data. In this presentation, we will discuss the basics to getting started with Tableau, how I’ve used Tableau to visualize COVID-19 surveillance data, and some of Tableau’s limitations.
