NHSDC Fall Conference and Youth Privacy Summit

NHSDC held two events in New Orleans, LA; its Fall Conference on October 13-14, 2016 and a Youth Data Privacy Summit on October 12, 2016. The final Conference Brochure and Agenda can be found here.

The conference highlighted the good work that communities are doing to leverage data and deploy different strategies to tackle challenging social service issues. The Youth Privacy Summit was a joint collaboration between NHSDC and National Network for Youth. A broad range of stakeholders gathered to discuss key challenges and next steps to address youth’s consent to share information collected and ensuring both youth and service providers fully understand what consent in this context means.
