The HHS Data Science CoLab

Making data work for HHS.

Reimagine Data: Massive amounts of data are being collected every day. As the Department of Health and Human Services, we must work to unlock the full potential of the data we receive.

A Collaborative Community: The Data Science CoLab aims to build a community of HHS employees as skilled data scientists who continuously learn from experts and from each other.

Learning Cohorts: Our learning cohorts bring in experts from the data science field to lead an eight-week intensive educational program. Participants will gain hands-on data science skills to use to address real problems in the HHS.

The CoLab Cycle: CoLab members will engage in a cycle of receiving high quality education, solving real problems, and helping others solve theirs. We believe learning never ends and the best way to learn is to do.
