I can’t make it as I will be in Banff this Friday but this looks good.
Saskatoon Community Clinic invites the public to attend this free presentation.
2012 is the 50th anniversary of medicare and Community Clinics in the province of Saskatchewan which set the stage for adoption of the program throughout Canada. In honour of this event the Saskatoon Community Clinic is presenting Stephen Lewis â€“ Medicare: Past, Present and Future made possible with the support of a number of sponsoring organizations.
â€œThis presentation is in celebration of this significant anniversaryâ€ says Anne Doucette, President of the Saskatoon Community Clinic. â€œMedicare had a difficult birth in this province, but managed to survive due to the tenacity and courage of many citizens including the founders of the Saskatoon Community Clinic. This is one of a series of events we have held throughout 2012 to honour this occasion.â€
Stephen Lewis is one of the worldâ€™s most influential speakers on human rights, social justice and international development. The former UN Secretary-Generalâ€™s Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, he is the Distinguished Visiting Professor at Ryerson University in Toronto.
