University of California Davis
Clinical and Translational Science Center
- Understand the basic concepts, tools, and techniques of Social Network Analysis (SNA) and how they relate to the evaluation of CTSAs and their impact on community research networks.
- Have sufficient exposure to a basic software tool for inputting and analyzing network data in order to undertake a simple social network analysis.
- Enumerate some possible uses of SNA and how to develop data collection tools or use existing sources to study the process and impact of CTSA on community engaged research.
- List primary authors of SNA analyses relevant to CTSA and community engaged research.

10:30-Noon Demonstration of NodeXL Software
NodeXL is a free and open add-in for Excel that supports network overview, discovery and exploration. A contributor to NodeXL will provide basic instruction in its use, how to generate useful network statistics and metrics, how to create visualizations of network graphs and how to filter and display attributes that can be used to highlight important structures in networks.
1:00-1:45 Using NodeXL
Joe Hunt, MPH, Indiana University (with Marc Smith)
