SHARELINES

Cuba has had extraordinary success in communicating important health messages around preventing things like HIV, obesity, and addiction to its citizens, but a lagging technological infrastructure has made collecting and storing that data challenging. UConn biostatistics professor Tania Huedo-Medina visits the country regularly, going door to door with health workers there and gathering information that could improve the way we collect health data in the U.S., as well create a system for better analyzing and storing that data in Cuba.
