Who knew Canadian research on hemp seed would attract a South Korean TV crew to St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre? Drs. Erin Goldberg, Harold Aukema and Rotimi Aluko were interviewed at St. Boniface by Korean TV on October 3rd on the health benefits of hemp seed.
The segment, which is part of a documentary series, will be aired on the Maekyung Broadcasting Network (MBN) in South Korea, where the import of hemp is new to consumers and has spawned interest in research being done in this arena. The crew spent considerable time in Dr. Michel Aliani’s spectrometry facilities.
Says Dr. Goldberg, “It was an excellent opportunity to shine a light on some of the hemp research that has been done at the University of Manitoba and SBRC”.
