The Northeast Missouri C.H.A.R.T. Partnership meeting on Wednesday, May 16, will feature Jamie Kleinsorge from the University of Missouri. Her presentation will introduce participants to the newly released All Things Missouri Platform and its functionality. Participants will learn how to access data, make a simple map, and create an assessment for their community or region. The presentation will also highlight the Crosswalk tool and provide insight and use cases on how the maps, data, and tools can be used in a community setting.

Kleinsorge is a Project Coordinator at the Center for Applied Research and Engagement Systems (CARES) at the University of Missouri. She has trained thousands of organizations, community-level professionals, government agencies, and healthcare systems on the use and application of data and GIS for community assessment, programming, and evaluation. She has a Master’s of Science in Rural Sociology with an emphasis in community development from the University of Missouri and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Western Illinois University.

The C.H.A.R.T. Partnership meets the third Wednesday of each month at Fiddlestiks in Hannibal with lunch at 11:30 a.m. followed by a program and the meeting at noon. Healthcare and social service organizations and leaders throughout Northeast Missouri are encouraged to participate. For more information about the C.H.A.R.T.
