Tweet Your Chronic Disease Maps on GIS Day
Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019
Sponsors: CDC, NACDD and Children’s Environment Health Institute (CEHI)
GIS Day is coming up on November 13, 2019.  CDC, NACDD, and CEHI invite you to celebrate by sharing your chronic disease GIS maps on Twitter! The goal is to get as many organizations and individuals as possible tweeting on GIS Day using the hashtag #ChronicDiseaseMaps. The tweets can highlight the important work you are doing with GIS for chronic disease surveillance, prevention and treatment as well as include a JPEG/GIF image of a map.

How can you participate?
On November 13, share your maps and explain in a tweet(s) how they contribute to chronic disease prevention. Feel free to include links to any related content. Make sure to include #ChronicDiseaseMaps in your tweet!
