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. An eye-witness to China's independence struggle, she 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 the launch of this long-awaited book!
