GO TO REGISTRATION!

Geo-Health aims to give students comprehensive knowledge and skillsets to critique and address a range of global health issues.  Students will be introduced to a variety of topics and concepts centred around how geo-spatial information and technologies can be used for addressing health and disease. Three main facets of public health will be covered: health risk – understanding where and when risks are and who may be affected; health response & services – examining accessibility to healthcare and inequalities; and health communication & decision making – communicating risks and the role of digital information and tools in providing information and aiding the decision-making process that include data structures and ethics.

The difference between the 7EC and 5EC courses, is the study load. In the 7EC course students need to submit additional assignments.
