The 2019 Place & Health Conference is a free event and is open to CDC/ATSDR employees and contractors, academic and government partners, public health and GIS professionals, and students.

This year’s theme is Vulnerable Populations. Through the application of geospatial technology and methods we can increase our understanding of the locations where disasters or disease occurrence may have a disproportionate effect on the health of the population. This knowledge can be used to enhance health promotion, disease prevention, and emergency preparedness activities which are the essence of public health.
