About the Atlas

The Four Corners Health Atlas is a project undertaken as a service to health care providers, residents, and public health professionals in Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The goal of the project is to provide polished maps of health outcomes and risk factors as resources to improve the health and well-being of citizens of these four states. Special attention is given to topics that are not already well covered in the scientific literature, and which focus on the needs of vulnerable and underserved populations.

The atlas is designed and maintained by a team of faculty and student medical geographers in the Department of Public Health at Brigham Young University. 

All maps are made using data which are publicly available, or for which we have obtained copyright permissions. All data sources and dates are cited in metadata accompanying the maps. If there are any maps that would specifically help you or those you serve, please request they be generated by e-mailing 4cornerhealthsatlas@byu.edu.
