Overview: As our understanding of health equity becomes more comprehensive and data are more accessible, our datasets grow and utilizing GIS tools becomes critical to understanding and communicating these issues. The need for multiple datasets from a variety of topic areas (including census, natural and built environment, cultural, and health outcomes) at neighborhood level scale are often required to gain answers. By compiling them within a GIS, we can begin to create analyses that can be used to better understand their communities.
Presenter: Adam Anderson is the Health Data and GIS Supervisor at Tri-County Health Department. He specializes in the understanding and collection of health, demographic, and community data - bringing them together in a way that recognizes the complexity in the distribution and explanation of health outcomes. This involves analyzing those relationships through GIS, statistical modeling, community engagement, and by creating useful data dissemination products through thoughtful graphic design and presentation.
