A DOCTOR’S QUEST to Saskatoon: Gretchen Roedde joins fundraising efforts

Gretchen  Jenny at McNally 2 March 7 2014It takes a special type of person to brave a Prairie winter, which explains why the intrepid Dr. Gretchen Roedde, author of A Doctor’s Quest: The Struggle for Mother and Child Health Around the Globe (Dundurn Press, 2012), travelled to Saskatoon during the first week of March.

As a guest of the Saskatoon chapter of Grandmothers for Grandmothers, Dr. Roedde spent the afternoon signing books and chatting with readers at McNally Robinson before delivering the keynote speech at G4G Saskatoon’s annual fundraising dinner.

Sharing stories from the trenches of mother-and-child health care in the developing world, Dr. Roedde addressed 400 people gathered at the Western Development Museum in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation‘s work with African grandmothers caring for AIDS orphans.

Additional photos of Dr. Roedde’s trip to Saskatoon–care of Jenny Neal, via Dr. Roedde–are available below.
