Tuesday, April 21st, 7pm
San Jose Peace and Justice Center
The San Jose Peace and Justice Center cordially invites you to attend a presentation by about his work in Palestine and his new book of short stories, Chief Complaint: A Country Doctor’s Tales of Life in the Galilee, exploring the changing, precarious, and ever-shrinking world of Palestinians living in Israel.
As his village’s first Western-trained physician, Kanaaneh has had intimate access to his neighbor’s lives, which he chronicles in a fictionalized collection of vignettes that reveal the struggles, triumphs, memories, and hopes of the indigenous Palestinian community living in a state that does not acknowledge their past or encourage their future. The book, published by Just World Books will be available to purchase.
Dr. Hatim Kanaaneh completed his medical and public health degrees at Harvard in 1970. He then returned to Galilee where, in 1973, he became the Public Health Doctor of the sub-district of Acre. He is the founder of the NGO, the Galilee Society (The Arab National Society for Health Research and Services). He is visiting San Jose from his village Arrabeh.
