Community Health Mapping Workshop

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Health-Equity.Org are co-sponsoring the first Community Health Maps workshop June 7-8, 2016.   The event will be held in the NLM Lister Hill Auditorium.

The workshop will bring together federal/state/local government representatives, related Associations, members of academia, community health professionals, community activists, information specialists, and information technologists from across the country to share and discuss new ideas and methodologies for empowering community organizations serving vulnerable or underserved populations with low cost, intuitive mapping technology.

Join us to hear experiences using the Community Health Maps workflow and learn how access to quality health information and the ability to visualize that data – to better understand and portray their significance to the community – can support efforts to reduce health disparities in underserved communities.

Please let Ms. Colette Hochstein (colette@nlm.nih.gov) know you plan to attend so they can make sure to have name tags and provide any updates as they occur.
