Monday, October 31, 2011: 2:30 PM
NASA's remote sensing programs have been at the cutting edge of using satellites and GIS mapping for public health purposes. This session will expose the audience to the need for continuing to pursue this line of questioning.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to: 1. discuss the public health implications of NASA's remote sensing programs; 2. outline how NASA can add value to similar efforts underway at other research institutions.
