17 Jun Happy Birthday Blog – Susan LaFlesche Picotte
Join us for our birthday blog today – we’re celebrating the historic legacy of Susan LaFlesche Picotte. Born on this day in 1865, Dr. Picotte became the first Native American woman to receive a medical degree. She used her degree to help her tribe, moving back to the reservation to serve its 1200 residents. We’ve included this short video to learn more about her.
You can also learn more about her here. Happy birthday, Susan!
