Tom Koch, author of Cartographies of Diesease: Maps, Mapping and Medicine, spoke at a breakfast gathering at the conference this morning. He spoke a little about the history of mapping as it relates to medicine and it did not start with John Snow's famous map of the Broad Street cholera outbreak. He suggested that the map created for showing medical phenomena (e.g. the spread of cholera or AIDS) is not the end but only the beginning of the process of thinking about its spatial dimensions. More details and illustrations in his book, available from ESRI Press who kindly have provided me with a review copy.
