January 10, 2023 – A project from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Department of Environmental Health titled “Racial Residential Segregation in Greater Boston” was runner up in the humanitarian and social justice category of the 2022 ArcGIS StoryMaps Competition, which invites storytellers globally to build stories about an idea, challenge, or solution through innovative data visualization techniques.

The Harvard Chan School team behind the project included Lisa Frueh, former research assistant and now doctoral student at Drexel University; current doctoral students Marissa Chan and Jahred Liddie; and Tamarra James-Todd, Mark and Catherine Winkler Associate Professor of Environmental Reproductive Epidemiology, and Gary Adamkiewicz, associate professor of environmental health and exposure disparities, who oversaw the project.

A blog on the ArcGIS StoryMaps website called the project “a phenomenal example of digital storytelling,” adding, “Each click and scroll weaves a compelling narrative, setting the stage of what is ultimately a much deeper series.”
