Mapping Asthma: The Geography of Inequality

Dr. Harris uses GIS to identify ‘hotspots’ of childhood asthma in St. Louis. Higher asthma rates are linked with social and environmental disadvantage, and reduced educational outcomes. Harris’ research explores these relationships. Through data, she seeks to discover solutions to health inequalities in the St. Louis region and beyond.
