What to do When a Doctor Isn’t Available with Professor Dr. Michael Mucz

The isolation of Ukrainian settlers on homesteads in western Canada forced them to rely extensively on traditional healing practices. These treatments used both household and community resources readily available to the settlers. Insights into such traditional practices may prove useful in helping us deal with our own minor health concerns.

Dr. Mucz will share his favorite remedies and talk about the highlights of the study that resulted in Baba’s Kitchen Medicines, published in March by the University of Alberta Press. The book is equal part history, anthropology and botany.
