Using GIS Maps to Advocate for Healthier Communities

January 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

JAN 19 2022, 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM EST

Maps have been at the forefront of decision-making for centuries. From John Snow’s cholera map of 1854 to New Deal-era redlining maps, they have played an instrumental part in decisions that have had long-lasting impacts on communities. This webinar hosted by the Institute for Public Strategies will demonstrate how geographic information systems, or GIS, can reveal relationships between geography and health (in)equity, and how community members can use their own maps to advocate for policy changes that promote community health and wellness.
