Innu Medical Glossary in Use

Students Cecile Katchinak (L) and Germaine Tshakapesh (R) refer to the Innu Medical Glossary during a course run as part of the Natuashish Home Support Worker Program (October 2014).

Co-instructors Elizabeth Dawson and Emma Ashini told us their 9 students found the glossary, and particularly the labelled diagrams, helpful in understanding and translating the course material.
