Iowa Public Health Tracking Portal Enhanced for Easier Use

The enhancements will make it easier for the public to access high quality data in less time. These data can improve the understanding of hazards and lead to actions that may prevent chronic illnesses. With IPHT, Iowans have access to both environmental data and health outcome data simultaneously.
