How does the body work?

Women in Medicine introduces kids to the field of medicine through the questions of a spunky girl whose inquiries guide an engaging, scientifically accurate conversation. Readers will be introduced to the diverse world of medicine and the amazing work of women who have given us incredible things like a cure for malaria and a lifesaving heart surgery. The women, who come from all across the globe and from a variety of historical periods, include Dr. Helen Taussig, Xoquauhtli, Dr. Gerty Cori, Dr. Angella Ferguson, Youyou Tu, and Florence Nightingale.

Designed to motivate girls to learn more about the field of medicine and see the impact one person's questions and care can have on the world, this book has been peer reviewed by an extensive team of scientists, science educators, and parents. Concepts covered include doctor, nurse, midwife, surgeon, medicine, heart, blood, heartbeat, health, disease, treatment, surgery, Blalock-Taussig Shunt operation, Sickle Cell disease, diagnose, Artemisinin, and data.

Part of the inspiring "Science Wide Open" series, Women in Medicine will encourage scientific inquiry in any young mind

Mary Wissinger was born in Wisconsin where she spent most of her childhood singing, reading, and daydreaming. She dove into storytelling through acting, singing, and writing (and writing and writing!). A former teacher, she can now be found at her standing desk in St. Louis, MO, writing stories that inspire curiosity about the world and connection with others. She is the author of the Science Wide Open Series and the My First Science Textbook Series. To learn more about Mary, you can check out her website, MaryWissinger.com. Danielle Pioli is an artist and illustrator whose mission is to inspire others to create. The idea of creating a whole universe from her mind to paper is what made her fall in love with art and storytelling. As a child, she was drawn to magic-what she calls Quantum Physics now. She creates art, illustrations, comics, zines, poems, songs, and hypnotherapy sessions. She is the illustrator of the Science Wide Open Series.
