About this Event

Leveraging Advances in Remote Geospatial Technologies to Inform Precision Environmental Health Decisions

April 14-15, 2021

10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET (times are subject to slight change)

By presenting environmental health data in a spatial context, geospatial technologies can provide insight on the spread of pollution and disease, help identify at-risk populations, and monitor environmental health trends.

This workshop will explore how recent advances in the resolution of geospatial technologies could inform precision public health—using geospatial data to target health interventions to the right populations at the right time.

Participants will also consider ethical uses of remote geospatial data and will delve into ways to integrate these data with other environmental exposure data.

This event is public and free to attend.
