BNDee Met Dr. Max Van Manen

Our active BNDee from North America (Toronto, Canada) has actively participated in the 17th Qualitative Health Research (QHR) Conference held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada last October 2011.

Dr. Edward Cruz had a great oppotunity to learn and consolidate skills at workshops, and met a diverse international, interdisciplinary audience.

However, the fitting tribute to his participation was the chance to rub elbows with who else but the phenom man himself: Max Van Manen.
