Review of Curandera

Cultural healthcare traditions are just now becoming more noticed as an important part to healing and health for many immigrants. This piece by Hal Cannon touches upon several examples of the importance in traditional healing practices told through a profile of the Curandera working in Oregon. American is becoming more aware of how natural healing practices can work in conjunction with Western medicine. This professionally done piece is a worthy example of that and would have a great deal of interest from listeners. The Curandera would work well in news magazines and in healthcare shows during any time of the year.
