ASTHO Public Health TechXpo 2022
The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials’ (ASTHO’s) Public Health TechXpo convenes public health leaders and experts to address our nation’s largest public health data and technology challenges, now and in the future. The virtual event, held May 10-11, will feature presentations from industry experts in public health, technology, health care, professional services, financial investment, workforce development, and more.
This year’s event will provide opportunities to discuss:
- The latest innovations in data analysis and technology
- The COVID-19 pandemic and how data and technology solutions impact our response
- How we can modernize our public health data and technology infrastructure
RTI experts will be presenting during the event on engaging the public health sector, responsive technological capabilities and solutions, and integrating systems within state and local public health agencies.
Advancing Epidemiological Forecasting and Intelligence
Tuesday, May 10 | 1:45–2:15 PM ET

Jessica Cance, MPH, PhD, Senior Research Public Health Analyst
Emily Hadley, MS, Research Data Scientist
Joëlla Adams, MPH, PhD, Infectious Disease Epidemiologist
Carianne Muse, MPH, Senior Director of Strategic Accounts
Modeling tools and methods used in public health research provide innovative avenues that aid in translating research data to inform policy. Translational modeling can contribute to chronic disease prevention, forecasting outcomes, and increasing access to treatment. Advancements in data modernization further highlight the importance of modeling methods to predict critical public health issues to improve responsiveness.
In this session, experts from RTI will discuss examples of addressing public health needs through the application of novel tools, the methodologies that were used, how they worked with practitioner partners, and the resulting outcomes of these projects. These impact summaries will point to why data modernization is becoming an important focus at the Institute, leading to the establishment of the Center for Data Modernization Solutions at RTI. This presentation will be followed by a discussion with the audience.
