Maximizing the impact of cancer data

Completed 2014

Can we enhance the social impact of cancer registry data by using better data-visualization techniques? 
Cancer registry data are available in all 50 states, strengthening the amount and quality of available population-level information. Strategic deployment of these data and data-related tools is needed to maximize their ability to improve public health. 
A transdisciplinary team comprised of HCRL team members, cancer epidemiologists from the Cancer Prevention Institute of California, and designers from the Sam Fox School of Art and Design and the New York Times are investigating the key issues related to this project.​
