Speakers: Dr. Jacalyn Duffin & Nathan Katz

Dr. Jacalyn Duffin will be telling the story of holocaust survivor Halina Robinson, a Polish-born Canadian scientist who played an important, but little-recognized, role in the discovery of Vinca alkaloids. Dr. Duffin is Hannah Professor Emerita of History of Medicine at Queen’s, and a recent inductee into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame.

Medical student Nathan Katz will be giving a short talk on the role of individual remembrance.

There will be a poster display from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, providing a historical overview of the Holocaust. Attendees are welcome to browse the posters before and after the talks. Light catering will be provided.

The talk is open to everyone. Please be aware that the posters contain images that some people may find distressing.
