Zhu Center for Global Cancer Prevention online course

In June, 2024 the Harvard Chan Zhu Family Center for Global Cancer Prevention will be launching the third iteration of an online course titled “Geospatial Data Science for Cancer Control and Prevention”.

This eight-week, self-directed online course will introduce students to important concepts in geographic data science and guided practical exercises in use of R and Google Earth Engine to process, visualize, and analyze geospatial data. In addition, students will hear from experts who are using geospatial data science to advance cancer and public health research in the US and in low-resource settings globally.
