Our Students Say...
"This course is a rich and nuanced exploration of the interplay of spatial associations between population health and exposure to multiple risk factors including pathogen/toxin load, socio-economic influences and 'built environment' indices. Well-paced and supported 'labs' move from mapping skills and associated ethics to the use of spatial statistics in assessing distribution in populatin health. Required readings are current and wide-ranging. The final project provides a wonderful opportunity to use acquired tools to explore in depth a personal research project of interest.
I highly recommend this course to all in population health - from analysts and city planners to physicians and veterinarians. The power of GIS to put "place" into the population health equation is a powerful tool. This course illuminates this exceptionally." C. Rymes, D.V.M., M.Sc,. Amycus Environmental Inc.
