Ellis and Colleagues Assess the Effects of Metropolitan Redefinitions on Racial Composition in New Article

CSDE Affiliate and Executive Committee Member Mark Ellis, with Dartmouth co-authors Richard Wright and Nicole Tiao, recently published an article in The Professional Geographer that analyzes the impact of redefining metropolitan geographic areas over time on their estimated racial composition. Using census data from 1990, 2000, and 2010, the authors demonstrate that the 2010 reclassification produces metropolitan areas that are relatively more White and relatively less diverse than those based on the 1990 definitions.

New Research from Otten and Co-Authors Explores COVID-Driven Policy Changes to WIC in Washington

In a new article in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, CSDE Affiliate Jennifer Otten and co-authors tap into the effects of policy changes in the Washington State Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children ( WA WIC) during the COVID-19 pandemic. In December 2020, WA WIC adopted federal waivers to transition to remote service delivery for certification and education appointments and also expanded the approved food list without utilizing federal waivers. The authors find that these changes expanded access to services and were positively viewed by WA WIC employees.

Mapping Types of Agricultural Land — New Research from Bergmann & Colleagues

CSDE External Affiliate Luke Bergmann and a number of colleagues recently published new research that characterizes agricultural lands in the U.S. midwest as conventional, regenerative, or both. In an era in which conventional agriculture has come under question for its environmental and social costs, regenerative agriculture suggests that land management practices can be organized around farming and grazing practices that regenerate interdependent ecological and community processes for generations to come. The authors present a multifaceted depiction of the geography of these land types.

Summer Network Modeling for Epidemics Workshop: Applications Open for 2022!

Network Modeling for Epidemics (NME) is a 5-day short course at the University of Washington that provides training in stochastic network models for infectious disease transmission dynamics.

This is a ''hands-on'' course, using the EpiModel software package in R (www.epimodel.org). EpiModel provides a unified framework for statistically based modeling of dynamic networks from empirical data, and simulation of epidemic dynamics on these networks. This course will touch on the deterministic and individual-based models, but its primary focus is on the theory, methods and application of network models. The course uses a mix of lectures, tutorials, and labs with students working in small groups. Click here to apply!
