Event description

Description

Ten years in the making, Searching for Dr. Victoria Chung: A Woman in Between finally brings together the complex and intriguing story of Dr. Victoria Chung, the first Asian Canadian, man or woman, to earn a medical degree in Canada. An eye-witness to China's independence struggle, she provided urgent medical care during World War II, stayed on after the 1949 Revolution, and became a legend in her own right until the Cultural Revolution. This book shines the light on a story long forgotten in both China and Canada.

Join authors Dr. John Price and Dr. Ningping Yu for their very first book launch in Vancouver!

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event. We accept Debit/Credit Card and Cash.
