The Doctor Can See You Now

For nearly a decade, the small town of Chapleau went without a regular family doctor, leaving the community alienated and isolated. In 2005, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine was established to train doctors from the north for the north. Former nurse Doris Mitchell, from nearby Brunswick House First Nation, entered the school in midlife. She and two other graduates now serve as family doctors in the community from which they came, becoming models for innovative rural health care.
