Raised by an educator mother, Antonia Novello survived a childhood illness to become a physician who specialized in treating children. Her work in the Public Health Service made her the first woman and first Latino to serve as Surgeon General of the United States. This book in the Notable Hispanic Americans series follows an extraordinary figure from her childhood in Puerto Rico through a historic career as a public health leader who blazed new trails handling emergencies like teen smoking, HIV/AIDS, and the September 11th attacks.
