May Chinn : The Best Medicine

May Chinn struggled against the odds to become one of the first Native American/African American woman doctors in the USA. This biography traces her life from early, disadvantaged childhood in New York City in the 1920s through 50 years of service as a researcher and carer for the poor in Harlem.

"[May Chinn is] skillfully written in a direct, engaging style...both the scientist and her science are clearly portrayed. The difficulty of balancing scientific research, community service, and a personal life is well depicted. Here we have a role model who is an appreciated part of a vital community." -- American Association for the Advancement of Science
