This is a hands-on training session where you will learn how to incorporate the Community Health Mapping (CHM) workflow into your research and training programs. During the workshop you will also hear about experiences where the CHM workflow has helped academic health centers and community-based organizations visualize their data and better understand and portray their significance to the community.
The CHM workshop presents an opportunity for attendees to learn and discuss new ideas and methodologies, which will empower community organizations, teachers, and students serving vulnerable or underserved populations with low cost, intuitive mapping technology.
1. Describe the Community Health Maps workflow which includes low-cost and open resources for community mapping and data visualization.
2. Create a data collection tool on a mobile device that can be used to collect community data.
3. Demonstrate how to map data collected online in and on the desktop.
