Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lucille Teasdale-Corti, CM, GOQ (January 30, 1929 - August 1, 1996) was a Canadian physician, surgeon and international aid worker, who worked in Uganda and contributed to the development of medical services in the country. Born in Montreal East, Quebec on 30 January 1929, Lucille Teasdale was the fourth of seven children. Her father Ren ran a grocery in Avenue Guybourg, Saint-L onard, Montreal. She was educated as a boarder at Coll ge J sus-Marie d'Outrement, a select Catholic college by nuns whose methods she thought to be very strict.[citation needed] A visit to the college by some nuns who had worked as missionaries in China acted as a catalyst for her, then aged 12, to consider becoming a doctor, this coming on top of voluntary work which she had done in a clinic serving the disadvantaged people of the Plateau Mont-Royal from which she had gained a conviction that the worst injustic was disease and that she could do something about it.show more
