Identifying Care Deserts

Our Care Desert initiative is an important step in increasing awareness of the often overlooked issue of lack of access to healthcare services and resources – especially among the most vulnerable. Care Deserts are locations where health resources are severely deficient and may constitute a significant barrier to care for all who live within the desert. We analyze and publicize how geography can contribute to public health concerns and how to best address these concerns.

By identifying where Care Deserts exist across the United States, is leading the initiative to reveal how our geography can contribute to both health problems and likewise, health solutions.
