Antonia Novello: Fantastic Physician

Format Price Qty

In this title, examine the life of dedicated children's doctor and public health servant Antonia Novello. Readers will enjoy digging into Novello's personal story, beginning with her childhood in Puerto Rico where she found inspiration in her own childhood illness to become a doctor. Students can trace Novello's success from her education at the University of Puerto Rico Medical School to her work with the National Institutes of Health, her tenure as US Surgeon General, and her service as commissioner of the New York State Department of Health. Engaging text and photos offer insight on health concerns relating to children, women, ethnic groups, and poor communities. While a timeline, glossary, and index supplement the text, an entertaining science activity allows readers their own hands-on experience based on the science that inspired this woman's groundbreaking career.
