I learned a lot!
An eye-opening look into the history of healthcare in Canada. The "voices from the past" section in particular is full of wonderful insights and anecdotes and the quiz is a lot of fun (and challenging!). The user interface is intuitive and very well designed. I learned a lot and look forward to using the app onsite.
Great resource for those interested in medical history
The app is easy to navigate and it has many neat artifacts! Highly recommended
