Community Health Maps Workshop, April 2019

Providing hands-on instruction in a low/no cost data collection and mapping workflow enabling community advocates to meet health mapping needs.

Welcome!

Do you work in a community-based minority health, environmental advocacy, or public health organization seeking low-cost mapping solutions?

Are you a GIS instructor or student interested in empowering community researchers to collect, analyze and share their spatial data?

Each Community Health Maps workshop provides hands-on instruction in a low/no-cost data collection and mapping workflow that enables community advocates to meet health mapping needs (like visualizing disease prevalence, hazards, clinic locations and more).

No prior experience using GIS software is required and workshop attendance is free of charge. Attendees are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own mobile device and laptop to use during the workshop.

For more information, contact the workshop planners at: CHMworkshops@umich.edu
