Geohealth is centered around a public health response plan where students learn about each of the components important for understanding and dealing with health and disease. These include incorporating the epidemiology to understand the spatial ecology of the disease and how to respond through the examining of control and treatment options.
The course has been designed to be 10 weeks in length where each student is expected to complete one lesson each week. Students are expected to spend a minimum of 12 hours per week on the course.
The course is organized around interactive weekly discussions and short weekly projects with a more substantial term project on a topic of the student’s choosing, due during the final week of the course (lesson 10). Each week students will tackle a specific health or disease problem integrating the theories with spatial data and different methods. Problem scenarios range across data surveillance and infrastructure planning, modeling vector-borne diseases, evaluating and planning health infrastructure, cluster analysis, risk mapping, responding to disease outbreaks and epidemics and other application areas.
