My main goal in starting this blog is to chronicle my continuing education efforts, especially my work learning about consumer health, data analysis and visualization. Here’s a quick list of my current learning goals:
- Earn the Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS) from the Medical Library Association.
- Learn to use a variety of data visualization and analysis software, such as Tableau.
- Take free data visualization/big data online courses.
- Learn how to code and create visualizations with R.
I’ve started working towards the CHIS by taking free online courses available through the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. Learn about free upcoming classes under the Professional Development section of their website.
