Ten years in the making, "A Woman in Between: Searching for Dr. Victoria Chung" 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, and University of Toronto's first Asian Canadian medical school graduate. An eye-witness to China's independence struggle, Dr. Chung 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 this exciting book launch discussion.
