Inspired by the number-one New York Times best seller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter-book series about women who stood up, spoke up, and rose up against the odds!
There weren't many women who tried to become doctors when Virginia Apgar went to medical school - but she didn't let that stop her. After a professor discouraged from becoming a surgeon, she became an anesthesiologist instead and created the famous Apgar test to check the health of newborn babies. It's a test that's still used in hospitals across the world today!
In this chapter-book biography by best-selling author and physician Sayantani DasGupta, listeners learn about the amazing life of Virginia Apgar - and how she persisted. Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton!
