11th International Summer School Spatial and digital epidemiology: Leveraging geo-referenced social media in the context of urban health, August 5-9, 2019, University of Zurich

The course addresses spatial and digital epidemiological approaches to social media data with a focus on urban health. We concentrate on state-of-the-art multivariable statistical and spatial statistical modelling to mental health outcomes as identified in geo-referenced Twitter data and associations with socio-ecological factors of urban contexts.

We combine theoretical and lab work on statistical analysis and spatial-epidemiological modelling techniques in an interdisciplinary approach.

The summer school Spatial and digital epidemiology is attracting participants due to its interdisciplinary character. Combining the scientific approaches of the discipline of geography with its genuine focus on space with those of epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, and the data sciences makes it possible and fruitful for the participants to deal with spatial dimensions of health outcomes. The summer school faculty has long-lasting cooperation demonstrated by joint publications in the fields of urban and megacity health, spatial epidemiology and the application of social media analysis in urban health research.

Participants will be working with the statistical software R.
