Surveillance and Evaluation Net-Conferences

The Surveillance and Evaluation Net-conference series provides information on evaluation best and promising practices and describes the role of evaluation in tobacco control work. The Net-conference series was originally designed for state surveillance and evaluation staff, but the material covers a variety of interesting and emerging topics in surveillance and evaluation that are valuable to other public health professionals. Each conference consists of a lecture followed by a question and answer session.
