Topic: Keewaydinoquay of Garden Island: A Story of Hope and Healing
We are pleased to host Sara L. Warber, MD, Clinical Professor Emerita of Family Medicine at the University of Michigan, studied and sometimes lived with Keewaydinoquay over fourteen years while also training to become a physician. Grandmother Kee, as she was known to the people who gathered around her on Garden Island and elsewhere, generously shared her life-changing perspectives with all who came to her with an open heart. On Earth Day 2021, you are invited to dip into this story of teacher and student, intergenerational friendship, and Nature's gifts of healing.
