The learning objectives for this webinar are:
    Density and Count of all births in Gainesville by census block group, 2003-2005
  • Briefly introduce several broad applications of GIS and spatial analysis in MCH research and surveillance
  • Develop a conceptual understanding of what ‘space’ means in MCH research
  • Link this conceptual understanding with several statistical approaches to the analysis of spatially referenced data
The presenter for this webinar is:
  • Dr. Michael Kramer, an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, where he teaches maternal and child health epidemiology and methods in social epidemiology. His research interests are largely centered at the intersection of perinatal and early childhood outcomes, social determinants of health, and spatial analysis, including work on residential economic and racial segregation and preterm birth, and neighborhood deprivation and early academic readiness.
