Mapping Broadband Health in America allows users to generate customized, county-level maps that display broadband access, adoption and speed data alongside various health outcomes, access and quality measures (e.g., obesity, diabetes, and physician access) in urban and rural areas. The mapping platform can be used to identify gaps and opportunities in connected health.

Key audiences for the webinar include federal, state and local agencies and offices that address health, connectivity, technology and/or rural development.
The webinar will feature:
* An overview of the broadband, health and rural “filters”
* Step-by-step instructions and user scenarios tailored to how agencies can use the platform to drive broadband health efforts in their respective areas and communities
* Information on how agency web developers and data experts can incorporate their own datasets into the mapping platform
* An opportunity to pose questions about the broadband health mapping platform to Connect2HealthFCC experts.
