  • (Mapping on next two slides)
    Mapping indicators for health resources demonstrated that neighborhoods with planned growth excelled in some health resources but had significant gaps with others. The city established a fund to build new infrastructure for the community.

    Local scale modeling demonstrated “hot spots” of pollution that were not seen by the existing regional air pollution monitors. The city used these models to justify higher standards of building ventilation.

    Can you ask Amanda is there a way to combine these three (or 2) maps into one – maybe through animation so we have them on one slide.

  • Review this slide after the tree exercise to wrap it up. Relevant stats:
    Only 20 - 30% of all health issues that people face are caused by genetic and
    genetics contribute 10-15% to disease and injury
    10-15% of disease and injury is related to access to health care

    Factors responsible for population health:
    Health status is determined by:
    Genetics: 20 – 30%
    Health care: 10%
    Social, environmental conditions, and behavior: 60 – 70%
