Abstract

Maintaining healthy lifestyles is difficult for the Latino communities of Worcester due to limited access to nutrition and physical activity resources. This project created interactive maps of these resources for the Division of Public Health (DPH) to provide Latino communities with valuable tools to locate nearby resources and assist the DPH to prioritize which regions require support to increase access to them. We recommend that the DPH prioritize the northeastern census tract while updating the web application to increase community awareness.
