Episode 108: We are very excited to bring you this episode on Black surgeons in North America. Lead by Dr. Don Nakayama, this initiative brings to light an amazing collection of their contributions and untold stories. We were lucky to sit down with Dr. Vivian McAllister, a longtime friend of the podcast and one of the chapter authors on Black surgeons in Canada. We were also lucky enough to be joined by Dr. Nakayama, as well as Dr. Cathy Slaney, a sociologist whose work has focused on one of the surgeons profiled in the book, her great-grandfather, Dr. Anderson Abbott. Last but not least, we were joined by Shannon Prince, the curator of the Buxton National Historic Site and Museum.
