This blog covers advances in child health research and in mapping techniques. We apply these stories to central Texas:

How do Austin’s children fare under the 10-1 plan?

Children’s Optimal Health (COH) has prepared this series of maps in which the Austin City Council districts under the 10-1 system are overlaid on maps previously produced by COH. This was done to spark discussion on how the changes to Council could impact, and be impacted by, child health needs. The districts are delineated by color except in the map of “Medicaid-eligible children by ZIP Code” in which the districts are bordered in red. Please contact us regarding any questions you may have about these maps.
