The Main Purpose of this ePortfolio:

There are many different aspects within the broad topic of History, and this course focused on the aspects of gender and health in Canadian History. When one learns about the history of gender and health, they would find that both are greatly intersected with one another. This is evidently shown by medical experts and gendered roles in the medical field. Throughout my ePortfolio, I will address the influence experts and gendered roles in the medical field had and how this relates to the health of the individual in terms of health in schools, Indigenous health, illnesses such as cancer, natural approaches to health, and more. As evidence to support my argument, I will be using various reading analyses that we discussed in class, my research topic of choice: Female Canadian Nurses in World War One, and other reflections on the past.
