Results of holistic medicine study to be highlighted in documentary

Hugo De Burgos, a professor of medical anthropology at UBC Okanagan, has conducted a study for the past eight months about holistic medicine in the Okanagan Valley.

The initial result of this study is a  documentary film that will be premiered Monday, Dec. 17, 6 p.m., at the UBCO campus.

The film features, Dr. Gabor Maté, Naomi MacPherson and Dr. S. Sandhar, a local musical band and more than 50 holistic healers in the valley, out of the 120 people De Burgos encountered in doing the research. He wants to invite the community to learn more and explore this not so visible healing aspect of our community.
