URISA 2013 GIS in Public Health Conference in Miami 

Just back our GIS in Public Health Conference. The event took place at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Miami and the level of engagement and discussion at the conference was stronger than ever. Topics ranged from Big Data in Public Health and Disease Cluster Modeling to Food Deserts and Mental Health.

We had another strong contingent from Kazakhstan and Armenia (and simultaneous translation) and a huge poster session.

Such an important conference, in an ideal venue. (With the NBA Finals in Miami and a Tattoolapalooza conference at the hotel prior to our event... it was quite exciting!)

Perhaps not as exciting as the Blackhawks/Bruins Final last night... but still pretty exciting!
