Health and Human Services GIS Conference 2021

Recurring event see all

April 22 6:00 pm 9:00 pm SAST

Esri is hosting its Health and Human Services GIS Conference in a virtual format. The conference is an opportunity for professionals to explore how spatial data and geographic information system (GIS) technology can underscore coverage gaps in the populations they hope to reach, opportunities to improve workflows, and the ability to plan and mitigate against unforeseen events.

The conference will consist of panel discussions, lightning talks, and other presentations. Attendees will also learn how the health community used GIS in Covid-19 responses to optimise facilities, model the spread, perform site selection for testing and vaccine locations, respond to questions of equity in delivering services, keep the public informed, and inform decision-makers on the allocation of resources.

Speakers on the programme include:

  • Jack Dangermond (founder and president, Esri),
  • Este Geraghty (chief medical officer, Esri)
  • Andrew Schroeder (VP of research and analysis, Direct Relief)
  • Cynthia Burghard (Research director, IDC Insights)
  • Linette Scott (CDO of enterprise data and information management, California Department of Health Care Services)
  • Ravi Shankar (Lead, WHO GIS Center in data, analytics, and impact for delivery)
  • Rasu Shrestha (Executive VP, Atrium Health)
  • Scott Harris (Acting state health officer, Alabama Department of Public Health)
