Publisher's Summary

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!

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

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!

Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton and a list of ways that listeners can follow in Virginia Apgar's footsteps and make a difference!

And don’t miss out on the rest of the books in the She Persisted series, featuring so many more women who persisted, including Sally Ride, Temple Grandin, and more!
