Call for Submissions

We invite attendees who are interested in health and medical geography disciplines to submit a paper to a session that focuses on application of geospatial technologies in scientific disciplines related to epidemiology, health services research, big data, and other fields relevant to health and health care provision. Quantitative and qualitative papers are welcome. Papers can be theoretical or applied as well as policy-based, but the underlying focus should be on topics relevant to geographically-linked health and demographic data analysis.


This session focuses on topics relevant to geographically-linked health and demographic data analysis.
