HealthLandscape Helps Launch Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky's Go to the Source! Webinar Series for Data Users

The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky has a new webinar series for data users called Go to the Source! We were honored to be the first presenter for the series.

Health Informatics Specialist Jené Grandmont gave an overview of geographic information systems (GIS) terminology as well as a demonstration of HealthLandscape's QuickMaps, QuickGeocodes, and QuickThemes tools. You can view her entire presentation here:

The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky is a fantastic source of health information data for Kentuckians. The Foundation partners with The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati to conduct the annual Kentucky Health Issues Poll (click here to download results), and also conducts surveys and other targeted research initiatives.
