2019 Geospatial Public Health Forum

Health Sciences are increasingly relying on geospatial technologies, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), to analyze numerous factors affecting human health.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Decatur, Georgia, employs a large team of geospatial experts to explain how location impacts disease and disability.  This forum will highlight spatial epidemiology at CDC, including projects such as environmental exposure, social vulnerability, public health emergencies and infectious disease outbreaks.

Please join us for a presentation by Laura Wright, GIS Analyst at CDC, titled "Using GIS to Tackle Public Health."

A reception at 5 p.m. precedes the talk at 5:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Department of History and Geography and the School of Health and Human Performance in support of the Global Health Studies Minor & Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GISc).  For more information, please visit:
