The PEI History of Medicine Society, the UPEI Department of History, and the Sir Andrew Macphail Foundation are pleased to co-host this year's Macphail Memorial Lecture by Dr. Sasha Mullally, Foreign Practices: Physician Immigration and the History of Medicare in Canada. Hailing from Gowan Brae, PEI, Dr. Mullally is a professor and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at UNB, and a former President of the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine. Her talk will examine several extremely topical issues, including immigration (particularly the so-called 'global search for talent') and the history of Medicare (with a special interest in problem of recruiting and retaining doctors in under-serviced areas, notably Atlantic Canada). There will be a cash bar reception at the Homestead at 6:30, with the lecture beginning at 7:00. Funding support from the Robert Pope Foundation for this lecture is gratefully acknowledged.
