“How can we affect diabetes prevalence in a community?”. GIS was the prefect tool both for analysis and visualization to internal and community stakeholders. To answer this question we had to geocode patients, run hotspot analysis, and create a small python script. To narrow down and select specific sites. AltaMed was able to find locations to help our patients and the greater surrounding community. This could be used by others to target community or promotional events near their customers.
