Air Alliance Houston’s Executive Director Bakeyah Nelson, PhD, will be one of the speakers at an upcoming webinar about the new PLACES Project, a first-of-its-kind effort to release health information covering the entire United States down to the city, county, and census tract level, including rural areas, small and midsize cities. 

The PLACES Project expands on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 500 Cities data to help pinpoint local health issues more precisely than ever.

Please join us for this webinar on how the new PLACES data can be leveraged to improve health for people from rural areas to big cities. State and local public health officials and community leaders are encouraged to participate.

Dr. Nelson will share how Air Alliance Houston has used the 500 Cities data and how PLACES will build on this work.
