Thursday: Technology and Public Health

New technologies are quickly transforming the public health landscape and can be a potent public health tool. The Virginia Department of Health Data Portal was developed to provide a convenient, interactive access point for health-related data for the state of Virginia. This portal is a comprehensive source for community health assessment, public health and population health data that is open to all. It provides interactive data at the most granular level available, and is updated continually with new information as it becomes available.

Visit www.vdh.virginia.gov/data/ to access the Data Portal.
