Pre-Workshop Short-course: Space Time Analysis for Health and the Environment

Monday, April 13, 2015 - The California Endowment, Oakland, CA

This 1-day class provided instruction on the space-time analysis of data relating health events to potential sources of environmental exposures. Examples of data included the time and place of residence of individuals with a given diagnosis, space-time paths of cases and controls over the life course, and cancer rates in local areas through time. We focused on chronic diseases, such as cancer.

These events are supported by the California Breast Cancer Research Program award 21MB-0001 with space donated by The California Endowment
