Health Geographics Research Initiative (GIS Health)

Our Team

We are a group of academic faculty based in the Section on Health Choice, Policy and Evaluation in the Department of Population Health at the NYU School of Medicine, who use GIS and advanced geospatial analysis to improve the health of local communities across diverse geographic regions.

Our Projects

We partner with a wide range of organizations on collaborative projects to advance the understanding of health geography. We study how the spatial distribution of social, economic, behavioral, and environmental forces influence population health.
