A Duty Toward the Living

by Sandy Burnett

A Duty Toward the Living [cover]

An account of healthcare in the Tantramar region, starting with the earliest days of settlement and continuing to the 1990s. The narrative explores how the community’s idea of what constitutes wellness has evolved over time, and what steps have been taken at each stage to achieve individual and collective health.

From herbal remedies to diagnostic imaging and laser surgery, it traces the evolution of healthcare in a local setting, demonstrating how each new development has created new expectations.

It is also a story of dedicated individuals who devoted their best efforts to protecting and enhancing the well-being of their neighbours in every generation.
