CHER Resources

CHER utilizes the School of Public Health’s Survey Center to conduct quantitative computer-assisted telephone interviews in multiple languages. We also use state-of-the-art online data collection with Illume (DatStat, Inc.), which provides graphic user interfaces for survey development, testing, and deploying.  

CHER  has its own Video Production Center and is a leader in making tailored and non-tailored video interventions that are aligned with research protocol and theory.
