Drexel Urban Health Collaborative Cores

Research and Data Core

The Research and Data Core compiles, processes, and analyzes data on health in cities, and provides expertise on the characterization of urban health and urban neighborhood environments. It also provides GIS and statistical support for urban health projects, with a special focus on health in the Philadelphia area, and supports research on urban health locally and globally through in-person and online workshops and courses.
