HIV testing day is June 27. On this day, organizations throughout the U.S. sponsor a wide variety of events, including free testing and education.  As HRSA’s Health Center Program funds 10,000 health center sites, serving over 24 million people, it is uniquely situated to address the HIV crisis.

One thing the team at HealthLandscape believes in pretty consistently is the power of data visualization. We do it daily by building mapping and graphing tools, we teach it, we research it. We live it, we breathe it. That’s why it’s always great to go out to conferences and interact with our fellow data-philes (as...

Coinciding with the peak bloom of the cherry blossoms and the return of warm weather to the capitol region, this meeting was a productive start to spring. I went with three objectives,...
We’ve all seen the meme – a beautifully rustic cabin and the question, “Would you live here if you had to give up [insert something here]?” Sometimes it’s the internet, sometimes it’s football, but the truth is, people living in rural areas face the real possibility of doing without more than WIFI and professional sports....
It’s Homecoming Season! This past weekend was my daughter’s homecoming dance at her high school.  I took this picture before the dance, with the sun going down and students just beginning to arrive.  They couldn’t ask for a better start to the evening. I have to admit that I’ve never taken part in my own...
