Jewish Women on the Map - Winnipeg, birthplace of demographer Mindel Cherniack Sheps
"As a physician, biostatistician, and demographer, Mindel Cherniack Sheps was acutely aware of the role science could play as a powerful social force:
'The only hope of solving the problems of this planet lies in the application of scientific understanding and skills in the service of human dignity, freedom, and welfare. … I suggest it would be well to approach all human problems with humanity, with a strong sense of the limitation of our knowledge and of the existence of large areas of ignorance, and with readiness to admit the errors we made. In short, we must approach human problems in the best traditions of science.'"
