A doctor continues her quest: Gretchen Roedde launches book on maternal health

It looks like congratulations are just what the doctor ordered! After a well-attended launch featuring a reading by Dr. Gretchen Roedde, a speech by Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus, and music by Dave Patterson, Dr. Roedde’s A Doctor’s Quest (Dundurn 2012) is in reprint! Highlights of the festivities are available on YouTube. Special thanks go to host Chat Noir Books for such a successful evening!

The launch followed Dr. Roedde’s appearance on CBC Radio’s Morning North, where she discussed the A Doctor’s Quest and the issue at its core: maternal health in the developing world.

Maternal health care is also the subject of Dr. Roedde’s talk at Rendez-Vous 2012, hosted by the Northern Ontario School of Medicine. As one of the conference’s plenary speakers, Dr. Roedde is slated to speak on Wednesday, October 10, 2012.
