COVID-19 Federal Datasets webinar: This past week, the health data research organization CareSet hosted a webinar walking the audience through the HHS’s Community Profile Reports and other facets of federal COVID-19 data reporting. The session featured Kevin Duvall from HHS and Amy Gleason from the U.S. Digital Services. If you use (or are interested in using) the Community Profile Reports, I highly recommend watching the recording; Duvall and Gleason provided great context on how the HHS stepped up its data collection this year.
