The 2009 Summer Training focused on the characteristics and essential elements of data use learning communities at the state and local level. The training presented steps in the process of establishing and sustaining a data use learning community as well as barriers to, and motivators for local programs to use data. Select communication tools were demonstrated for specific purposes related to implementing and maintaining a data use learning community. Participants developed a state action plan for encouraging locals to value and use data for program improvement.
