PolicyMap News and Data Updates for May 2014


Kentucky Department for Public Health launches interactive maps powered by PolicyMap!

Kentucky Public Health developed its Health Risks and Resources map to help local public health personnel prepare to respond to vulnerable populations in case of an emergency. Kentucky Public Health loaded the locations of key preparedness resources — emergency management offices, long-term care facilities and dialysis centers — with data points from PolicyMap, including the locations of hospitals, retail-based health care, and Federally Qualified Health Centers. Using these resources, public health practitioners can be better prepared to respond to emergencies. Visit the map at the Kentucky Safety and Prevention Alignment Network to see all of the data made available or read more on our blog.
