H.N. Segall Prize Winner

Heather Stanley presented a paper at the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine conference, held this year at Carleton University (Ottawa), May 29-31. Her paper, "'Vested Interests': The 1902 Midwives Act in Britain and the Construction of Medical Identities", won the H.N. Segall Prize, awarded annually by CSHM for the best graduate paper. As a fellow conference attendee, I can tell you that this year's competition was tough.

Congratulations, Heather!
