EOH 710 Advanced Methods in GIS for Public Health 3.0 Credits

This course will familiarize students with the applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to understand how the places that people live, work and play either add to or detract from health. Methods to assess the relationship between aspects of our environments (e.g. housing, transportation, food/nutrition, crime, chemical pollution, parks, and vegetation) and health in Philadelphia and beyond will be discussed. Students will learn through a multidisciplinary approach drawing from public health, geography, epidemiology, planning, medicine, and the social sciences.
