GIS for Public Health


The Department of Health Behavior is pleased to announce a new
graduate-level course:

GIS for Public Health

John Snow’s map showing cholera case clustering in the 1854 Broad Street outbreak.

More than 150 years after John Snow demonstrated the power of a map to
help solve public health problems, we are just now beginning to realize the
true potential of mapping in public health.

This course will cover the theory and application of geographic information
systems (GIS) for public health. Students will develop basic GIS
skills and learn how to use GIS to describe and
solve public health challenges.
