A play about cancer

Sarah’s Daughters” is an example of the use of theatre in healthcare education for the purpose of education and to influence health care policy. “Sarah’s Daughters” is the story of a woman’s journey in dealing with genetic breast cancer. It is a very moving, and accessible presentation, which illuminates the challenges faced by women who may carry the Breast Cancer (BRCA) gene. Prior to writing “Sarah’s Daughters”, the play-write, Dr. Jeff Nisker, interviewed women who were in the high risk group for the BRACA gene. He wrote the play, striving to encapsulate their stories. Once the play was written, those interviewed watch it and provided feedback and editing guidance. After several edits, and once the participants felt the play reflected their stories, Dr Nisker produced the play in major centers throughout Canada.
Camosun College is pleased to be producing “Sarah’s Daughters” January 28th @ 7:30pm; January 29th at 2:00pm & 7:30pm. Tickets are $24.00 per person and $18.75 for students and seniors. Tickets are available through the McPherson box office or vouchers can be purchased through Camosun College Nursing Faculty. Prior to the matinee there will be a brief educational discussion regarding the development and writing of “Sarah’s Daughters”.

What a revelation!


In a recent study that appeared in the May/June 2009 issue of General Dentistry, the AGD's clinical, peer-reviewed journal, lead author, Mohamed A. Bassiouny, DMD, MSc., PhD, outlined the acidic content of beverages, such as soda; lemon, grapefruit and orange juice; green and black tea; and revealed three steps to rehabilitate teeth that suffer from dental erosion as a result of the excessive consumption of these products.


Lastly, the person should stop or reduce consumption of the suspected food or beverage to the absolute minimum.

Clear enough for ya? Good conclusion's really not obvious! Thanks for your inquisitive work!

Somebody tell me why I went to school for nearly 20 years?
