MHIKNET is 10 years old this year and we're celebrating this milestone over the next 10 months:

  • Our MHIKNET blog features monthly 10 Feature Resources posts highlighting useful tips and resources.

  • September 25, we were at the 2nd Annual Manitoba Centre for Health Policy Evidence to Action Workshop.
  • We have our MHIKNET booth at the monthly Fridays at the University, Bannatyne Campus CPD Program for Primary Care, where we prepare self-directed learning resources and are there to meet you and answer any questions.
  • In October we launched our satisfaction survey to ensure we’re meeting the needs of MHIKNET clientele and to determine where improvements can be made.  Results from this survey will be available in 2019.
  • We’ve been shaking up the MHIKNET education sessions with invited speakers presenting on new topics.

Upcoming Education Sessions

2019 Winter Education Series


Librarian Grace Romund guest-hosts this session, demonstrating in real time, how you can take raw health data and turn it into a map!

In this session you will discover how to integrate existing GIS data and health data sources (e.g. Statistics Canada, WHO, etc.) to visualize and analyze health statistics geographically. You will also learn about geographic data points and how to visualize data that you may have collected in your research or practice. This session will primarily focus on the free open source software program QGIS.

Previous GIS experience is not required.
