60 mins


Toronto Reference Library

Dr. Michael Klein is one of Canada's most prominent family doctors. He presents his memoir: Dissident Doctor, My Life Catching Babies and Challenging the Medical Status Quo.

Challenging conventional medical wisdom by fighting for the acceptance of midwifery as a humane medical practice in Canada, Klein will share his early experiences working with midwives in Ethiopia, which led him to question the approach of Western maternity care.
