The recently created Community Health and Spatial Epidemiology (CHaSE) lab is situated within Washington State University’s Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, part of the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. Located on WSU’s Spokane campus, the lab utilizes advanced geospatial and statistical methodologies to investigate how neighbourhood and population characteristics impact disease occurrence, health care access and health outcomes. The lab also employs interactive data visualization to assist users in understanding and exploring the outcomes of population health research based on geospatial and clinical data.
