This year’s conference offers a wonderful list of sessions and several excellent lunch time panel discussions. We are currently expecting Jennifer Ho, Deputy Director at the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, and a representative from the Department of Veterans Affairs to discuss the role and future of data in human services. We are also planning a two-part session by Noah Iliinsky on Effective Data Visualization. The first session will address and share approaches to simple, effective display of complex data and in a hands-on follow-up session attendees can bring data sets on their laptop and learn from Noah how to best connect with your audience. To learn more about Noah Iliinsky check out his recent session at the Strata Conference and watch his presentation at NY Strata Ignite: To see a list of all of our confirmed sessions, as always please visit us at: www.NHSDC.org
