Alumni Book Launch: Medicine Unbundled by Gary Geddes 2017-02-23 15:00:00

Released to coincide with the Year of Reconciliation (2017), Medicine Unbundled: A Journey through the Minefields of Indigenous Health Care looks at the history and legacy of segregated indigenous health care in Canada, the lesser-known twin to the residential school system. Medicine Unbundled recounts the stories of indigenous elders across the country - the result is a testament to survival, perseverance, and the power of memory to keep history alive and contribute to a more open and just future.

Join author Gary Geddes and Songhees Elder Joan Morris for iscussion about this important and timely book.

100% of the royalties from Medicine Unbundled will support the Sellemah Scholarship, which will benefit an indigenous student studying in the Faculty of Social Sciences at UVic.
