This presentation challenges public health epidemiologists to consider how we can advance the communication of population health assessment messages through the use of infographics. An overview of the literature, including findings from four thought leaders in the field of data visualization, will be followed by a discussion of Public Health Ontario’s novel use of infographics to draw attention to ten diverse public health issues addressed in the Ontario Health Profile.
