I’m glad to read your comments. Typically, spatial analysis in studies tends to concentrate on communicable diseases which you can see from TMHG549, GIS course. However, I think it would be also valuable to provide an alternative outlook from a view of non-communicable diseases. Despite the varying mode of transmission, the techniques covered in this class remain pertinent and can be applied to various health outcomes. Among non-communicable diseases, mental health is often overlooked and underrepresented, despite its recent recognition as a significant concern, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, our class will encompass comprehensive spatial analysis methods, which I hope you’ll be able to apply effectively to your specific areas of interest.
Looking forward to an insightful learning experience together. Cheers!!
