            Winnie Shandro fonds
            PR4161 · Fonds · 1934-1984

            Winnie Shandro describes her career in public health nursing, not in chronological order, but in the order that her lively memory decided. She describes the professional relationships between doctors and nurses and the bad behavior of some doctors towards nurses. One of their first tasks at the East Central Health Unit was to restore discipline to both professions and to improve relations between the public health service and the local hospital. Her main focus is on the health services she offered to First Nations and Metis settlements and to Indigenous patients in the Yukon and northern Alberta. Shandro’s career covered over 50 years of nursing service.
