The Med Thread
From opium poppies to sleeping pills, from sucking to infusing, from insomnia, anemia, auto immune diseases and beyond - we discuss the threads that led to current trends and research in medication therapy. Listen to The Med Thread monthly, as we sew a patchwork quilt with squares of history, mythology, research, sciences and technological advances. The show is produced at CHMR studios in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
