State Health Departments Selected for 2017 Advanced Thematic GIS Training

Friday, March 17, 2017   (0 Comments)

GIS are computer-based systems that allow users to analyze and display geographically referenced data. Training participants will develop maps useful in highlighting and addressing the blood pressure medication adherence needs in their respective communities.

These projects will address four key areas related to blood pressure medication adherence: 1) documenting existing geographic disparities in blood pressure medication adherence; 2) identifying gaps in clinical, community, and public health services that are important for supporting blood pressure medication adherence; 3) providing a basis for informing programs and policies related to blood pressure medication adherence; and 4) enhancing existing partnerships and facilitating new partnerships among pharmacists, physicians, hospitals, public health clinics, community health workers, and other health systems and health care organizations.

Products and lessons learned from the participating state health departments will be shared widely and posted to the NACDD GIS webpage.
