A Renewed Focus on Health Disparities in the Year 2020: Reexamining Geospatial Disparities.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • To achieve the ultimate goal of health equity for all people in the United States, new methods are necessary to further understand health disparities in cancer. Geospatial approaches to examine outcomes in cancer control and population sciences in the United States is an area of growing interest, but traditional methods are hindered by the use of a single location at the time of diagnosis. Incorporating residential histories into geospatial analyses overcomes this challenge and is a step forward in improving our understanding of geospatial disparities in cancer outcomes.See related article by Wiese et al., p. 2119.
