Your Data and Health Research

September 23  – 7 p.m.
McNally Robinson Booksellers, 1120 Grant Avenue, Winnipeg 


Are our health services available in the areas with the greatest needs? Is the population getting healthier over time? How does healthcare in one region compare to another? How does healthcare use in Manitoba compare to other parts of Canada? What is the relationship between education, housing and other social services and health? The answers to these questions and more are in the data. Each doctors visit, every prescription filled and school program creates data. These data can tell us a lot about how we use services and what keeps us healthy. Join our expert panel to learn what this research can tell us about the health and well-being of Manitobans.
