Innovative research methodologies for small populations

Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Innovative research methods are becoming more widely used to understand trends, social determinants of health, and to explain and predict behavior in disparate and vulnerable populations. Such innovative methods include integrated geospatial software and market segmentation systems in additional to web based tools, photovoice, and capacity building. Populations targeted in this session include health departments, Deep-water Horizon Spill communities, organizations, and youth.
Session Objectives: Explain how using market research data with GIS enhances the design of programs at state departments of health. Describe how a web-based tool was used to assess beverage availability in a variety of community environments. Identify priority areas for rural community health after a technological disaster. Describe mixed-methods strategies for assessing and analyzing community data to determine environmental exposures
