Stirling County Study
More than sixty years ago, a psychiatrist from Cornell University came to Nova Scotia and launched one of the most highly respected and influential health studies of all time.
The Stirling County Study was the life's work of the late Dr Alexander Leighton, and his widow, Dr Jane Murphy from Harvard Medical School.
But most people in the community have never heard of it...perhaps because there IS no Stirling County.
This week the CBC's Eileen McInnis explains why the couple kept the community's anonymity intact.
And why the Stirling County study was - is - so ground-breaking.
