The truth is where you live, work, and play, affects your wellbeing and longevity. Now more than ever, geography matters in health. Today, health and human service organizations use geographic information systems (GIS) to visualize and understand the underlying data about the populations they serve.

GIS is a powerful tool for creating a new vision for health improvement and the allocation of resources in communities. The most robust GIS platforms give public health and human services organizations the ability to create a collaborative approach to communicating and sharing data among their own departments and with the public. As part of the Healthy Communities Platform, GIS brings together maps, apps, authoritative data, and people to make smart, data-driven decisions.

In this online training you’ll hear lessons learned and best practices from health and human services professionals who are utilizing GIS technology to bring their data to life, make it actionable, and create a platform for innovation.
