Adventures of a female medical detective : in pursuit of smallpox and AIDS by Mary E Guinan( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary Guinan broke through many gender barriers to have an exciting and successful career in public health. After completing medical school at Johns Hopkins (she was one of ten women in a class of 110), she spent five months in India working on smallpox, before becoming an STD expert and an instrumental part of the team that uncovered the AIDS epidemic. (She was even featured in the book and movie And the Band Played On.) Dr. Guinan was the first woman to serve as chief scientific advisor for the CDC. Her career over the next several years at the CDC involved AIDS research and education and culminated in her becoming Nevada's first chief public health officer and the founding Dean of the UNLV School of Public Health. In Adventures of a Female Medical Detective, Guinan writes twelve stories about her career at the CDC as a medical detective, providing the unique perspective of being a woman at a time when very few women worked in this field. Throughout the book, Guinan investigates fascinating diseases including smallpox, AIDS, STDs, and listeria. Her adventures in medical forensics are told within the context of the larger public health concerns of the time. She focuses on methods used to find solutions to problems. This first-hand account is written with the general reader in mind; the stories are short, engaging, and informative. The manuscript reviewer, Dr. Joel Breman, describes Mary's work as a collection of "poignant and often hilarious tales ... from a front-line, public health heroine." In addition to its target market of general readers and public health practitioners, this book will be an enthralling addition to undergraduate public health and early MPH courses"--
