decision-support tool providing access to data on Federally
Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) from HRSA's Uniform
Data System (UDS). UDS Mapper, developed in
collaboration with John Snow, Inc. and the Robert Graham
Center, is designed to help inform users about the current
geographic extent of U.S. federally-funded health centers.
A webinar demonstrating the UDS Mapper will be held on
March 24 at 2PM EDT. Click here for information on the
