********************
Alameda County Public Health Department, headquartered in Oakland, California, is one of the nation’s leaders in addressing the root causes of infant mortality disparities.  Their Health Data Profile is a fine example of telling a story that connects health with social conditions, and social conditions with place . Maps are an indispensable part of telling place-based stories, and a powerful way to help community members, corporations, legislators, and health professionals understand the underlying reasons for health disparities.

Our presenter, Matt Beyers, is the powerhouse behind Alameda County’s maps. On this call, Matt will share tips for clear and relevant map-making, some pitfalls to avoid, and how to deal with special circumstances like rare events. Join us as we move beyond analysis of vital records data and explore GIS as a way to communicate the importance of social and environmental disparities.

About Matt Beyers:
Matt has been an epidemiologist at the Alameda County Public Health Department since 2003, and has been using GIS since 1998. Educated at UT Austin, his previous work experience includes engineering, economic consulting, and data and research at a nonprofit.
