SAHSU GIS for Public Health short course July 2016

SAHSU GIS for Public Health short course 18th-22nd July 2016

Speakers: Dr Daniela Fecht and Dr John Gulliver

We have had another succesful year of running the GIS for Public Health Short Course. This specialist workshop on GIS for Public Health offers an introduction to GIS and how it is used in public health and epidemiological research. Participants learn how to use GIS to prepare and analyse data for studies of environment and health, use GIS to assess exposures to environmental pollution, and explore and analyse patterns and spread of disease. Specific skills and tools are introduced in relation to assessing exposure to a range of environmental risks, and a particular focus will be given to methods for linking geographical and health data for epidemiological studies and health risk assessment.

We look forward to running the course next year with details to come closer to the date.
