A Community Presentation by Dr. Gabor Mate
Dr. Gabour Mate is a world-renowned addiction expert who currently works as the staff physician at a clinic for drug-addicted people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. In his most recent bestselling book, In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts, he shows that their addictions do not represent a distinct set of medical disorders; rather, they merely reflect the extreme continuum of addiction, mostly hidden, that runs throughout our society.
Sister Jovita McPherson ministers with people without homes in Halifax. Both bringing unique perspectives and experience in serving these vulnerable individuals with compassion.
Building on the excellent progress of the City of Lethbridge and Social Housing in Action Committees, this community conversation will help us all recognize that each of us has a role in helping our neighbour.
