WRMA to Present at the American Evaluation Association’s Annual Meeting

 WRMA will be presenting at the Annual Meeting of the American Evaluation Association this coming November in Washington, D.C.  Facilitated by Dr. Jennifer Dewey, this panel will highlight key issues in the ongoing development of three U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-funded projects that collect, analyze, and report key information on vulnerable populations. Panelists representing the National Adult Maltreatment Reporting System, the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System, and the Children’s Mental Health Initiative will lead a dynamic discussion. Topics will include: 1) the consensus building and negotiation process between contractors, federal agencies, states, researchers, and other stakeholders to determine data needs; 2) building and regularly updating systems to collect and store data that may change over time based on funding priorities and other themes including key project successes and challenges.
