Hello Pyzdra,

I know this post is a couple of months old now, but I was wondering if you were still looking for a person to fill this position or if you might require someone for 2011. I am completing my BA in Geographic Analysis in December and was looking for a part time job in the medical field before doing a Masters in Health Informatics. I have experience as an analyst for York Region in the Applied Mapping and Analytics division with my key project being that of developing the entire region's base map templates. I was the Project Manager for a consulting firm that worked with Halton Health Care Services in mapping patient referral patterns . I have extentsive knowledge of Arcmap 9.3.x and currently I am working part time with Ryerson University developing and updating geo-spatial resources as well as setting up the new university Health Informatics portal. I have experience working with Adobe Dream Weaver, MapInfo, VBA programming and have worked extensively with census data at the DA and CT level. I also have taken Health Geography courses which is where I want to focus my career efforts.

I realize that there is potientally nothing availiable, however if should something arise I would be happy to assist in any projects you may have.

Thanks,

Alan
