The webinar "GIS for the Advancement of Child Welfare" describes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geospatial data and how they are used in child welfare. Our speaker, Kathryn Kulbicki, a consultant to the Children's Bureau's former National Resource Center for Child Welfare Data and Technology (NRC-CWDT), discusses geographic principles necessary for understanding geographic patterns and clusters. By understanding geography, we can better understand our communities and our families. Ms. Kulbicki also highlights child welfare GIS projects from several states that have been active in the NRC-CWDT's peer-to-peer group.

Joyce Rose, consultant to ICF International, moderates the webinar.
