Yong Kang: The HIV Vaccine
Human trials are beginning for a Canadian developed HIV vaccine. The vaccine's head researcher Dr. Yong Kang sits down with Steve Paikin.
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine opened in 2005 in an effort to address health care needs in an underserviced Northern Ontario. As part of their training, in year three of the program, each of the school's students spends eight months serving a Northern community. Student Alex Mantha tells Steve Paikin about her experience in the North, and whether she intends to practice in Northern Ontario.
