“Seeing for Action – Using Maps and Graphs to Protect the Public’s Health” Date: Feb. 5, 2016
This scientific symposium is one of several events that kicked off the opening of the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit, hosted at the CDC David J. Sencer Museum from January 25 – June 17, 2016 (http://www.cdc.gov/museum/exhibits/mappingscience.htm). The public expects to be protected from health threats at home and abroad. Public health leaders need the best information to make better, faster decisions to protect the public’s health. Advances in maps, graphs and other visualizations can greatly help the public understand health threats and can lead to quicker public health responses. This symposium brought together researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Thomson Reuters to explore how government, academia and industry can collaborate to improve visualization tools to better protect the public’s health.
