MAPPING THE HEALTH OF A COMMUNITY
Community mapping is a process through which citizens in the community participate in the collection of their own data as well as the creation of solutions.The goal of this initiative is to record what residents of Harlem view as forces that influence health.
We know that being healthy depends on more than seeing and being treated by a doctor. Many other factors in a neighborhood, from crime, to food available to housing conditions have a major effect on people’s lives and health.
MFA Design for Social Innovation, The Arnhold Institute for Global Health, and the PopTech Institute are partnering to create a new way to understand and address the health needs of a community.
