Disseminating the results of increasing the availability and promoting the use of the National Library of Medicine's Datasets for Public Health System

This transition grant supports a conference of ten mini-grant recipients to present their work. It will support their travel and expenses and also allow them to bring their mentors. This conference could also serve as a promotion tool for public health systems research within schools of public health. This conference could be used to promote stronger curriculums in schools of public health. By focusing on the young investigators, it is believed that the future of public health systems research will be assured. Finally, these funds will support a journal supplement or special issue dedicated to public health systems research highlighting junior researchers.
