Tyrone Grandison is founder of the Data-Driven Institute, a Seattle, Washington-based public health non-profit that helps communities transform raw data into insights, products, policy and applications. While the chief information officer at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IMHE), a population health research center affiliated with the University of Washington School Of Medicine, he led the technology team that produces the data on the diseases, risk factors and injuries that lead to shortened lives and poor health. On fellowship he will use China, the world’s most populous country, as his laboratory, to apply the types of data that IHME typically generates, but on a much larger scale and learn where that leads. He plans to meet with Chinese business leaders and officials at the ministries of health, statistics, science and technology.
