With a focus on health, the session will also include tips on locating and using datasets online that can enhance your stories. Even if you’ve never used a spreadsheet before, you’ll come away with a jumpstart to add this skill. If you’ve had some experience, you’ll find some tricks and strategies to make your use more effective.
