RDU Webinar Series: Identifying Target Areas for Colorectal Cancer Screening in Louisiana through Geospatial Analysis
Recorded On: 08/10/2017
The Louisiana Tumor Registry (LTR), along with the Louisiana Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and geospatial experts from NCI, Westat, and Temple University, collaborated to map colorectal cancer in Louisiana to support the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable’s “80% by 2018” initiative. The overall goal of the project was to use multiple data sources and geospatial analyses in order to identify the places and high-risk populations who may benefit the most from screening interventions. Through this webinar, the LTR will share its experiences with address cleaning and geospatial analyses, as well as present the resulting maps and implications for screening in Louisiana.
