Bernard Roy is a professor at the Faculty of Nursing, Laval University (2004) and holds a PhD in Anthropology (2002). It is in his nursing course in Aboriginal communities that is initially interested in this important event of iniquity whose health was and still experienced by men and women of First Nations diabetes. His work on this health issue were supported Diabetes Québec and have been the subject of numerous publications and conferences. His book “Sweet sugar, powers coded and bitter medicine” was awarded in 2005 by the Luc-Lacourcière medal which recognizes excellence of a anthropology’s book published in French language in North America. In fact, the heart of the work of this teacher-researcher is the desire to increase the value of the word of these people too often left behind in a world where, increasingly, the evidence are popular.
