ST. LOUIS – How have health care experts used geospatial technology during the Covid-19 pandemic? What other ways is geospatial technology being used to address critical health care challenges?
The GeoInnovation National Speaker Series, a national speaker series focused on geospatial innovation that shines a monthly spotlight on St. Louis’ fast-growing geospatial ecosystem, will examine these and other questions in its April edition. “The Pandemic and Beyond: how geospatial technology is helping health care” will take place via Zoom Wednesday, April 7, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. (CT) to 3:00 p.m. (CT).
The discussion will feature Dr. Este Geraghty, Chief Medical Officer and Health Solutions Director at Esri, and will be moderated by Dr. Alexander Garza, Chief Community Health Officer at SSM Health and Incident Commander for the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force.
The GeoInnovation National Speaker Series is a collaboration between innovation hubs Cortex and T-REX and GeoFutures, an initiative of the recently formed regional economic development organization Greater St. Louis, Inc. that was launched in October 2019 to bolster the St. Louis region’s rapidly growing geospatial sector and develop a strategic plan for the future.
Health care is one of four leading industry sectors in the St. Louis region identified in the GeoFutures Strategic Roadmap as a growth area due to its alignment with the use of geospatial technology and location data.
