S02 Special Episode - “Exposing Medical Colonialism” ft. Dr. Samir Shaheen-Hussain
Show Notes Chapter Markers

"In this special episode I speak to my friend and medical colleague Dr. Samir Shaheen-Husein.  He is the author of the book, “Fighting for A Hand to Hold: Confronting Medical Colonialism against Indigenous Children in Canada”. His book is a powerful example of solidarity and truth telling in medicine.

Of note, this episode was recorded before the revelation of the horrific Kamloops residential school burial site, and before the release of the public inquiry into the death of Indigenous patient, woman and mother, Joyce Echaquan. Details of these tragedies are in the ShowNotes, as well as how you can purchase a copy of this book. All author royalties from sales of this book go directly to initiatives that support or are led by Indigenous communities.
