ABOUT THE BOOK

There is currently a huge shortage of African-American and Hispanic/Latino healthcare professionals. Representation matters in healthcare as well as in children's literature.

This book will encourage young African-American and Hispanic girls to consider a career in healthcare. All healthcare professionals have similar qualities, skills and characteristics that can be cultivated over time. Therefore, I hope that this book can encourage girls to build these things earlier. I also hope that this book will ultimately help the future healthcare field to have more physicians, PA's, RNs/NPs, PTs, OTs, dentists, pharmacists, veterinarians, and optometrists of color.
