John Erickson, of the Institute for Data Exploration and Applications (IDEA) at Rensselear Polytechnic Institute (RPI), is the lead engineer of COVIDMINDER–a graph and map-based visualization tool for COVID-19 statistics across the nation, by state and by county, with daily updates. COVIDMINDER is an outgrowth from MORTALITYMINDER which graphs and maps the demographics of mortality disparities. These projects are under the Health INCITE program at RPI with Dr. Kristen Bennett, and is funded by the United Health Foundation. Go online (now!) and check out the COVIDMINDER web application at covidminder.idea.rpi.edu and the related MORTALITYMINDER at mortalityminder.idea.rpi.edu.
I’m Jared Wesley Singer, for WOOC 105.3FM at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY–with the Water Justice Laboratory.
