Data Visualization Tool on Broadband Connectivity’s Impact on Health

The FCC’s Connected2Health recently developed a data visualization program that displays correlations between broadband connectivity and health. These data points are displayed at national, state, and county levels. Oftentimes, opportunities for health enabled by broadband do not exist in these under-resourced areas. The goal is to highlight areas most at disease risk because of low broadband access and better allocate resources in the public and private sectors and communities themselves. Learn more here.
