What was it like to be a woman doctor in Florida in 1909?

Myakka River State Park is having a special living history event on January 11 2013 at 7pm:

Carrie Sue Ayvar
Historical Portrayal Artist and Chautauqua Scholar

Doc Anner: Petticoat Doctor of the Everglades

“She treated outlaws with gunshot wounds, cowboys with tarantula bites or fractured femurs, Seminoles with malaria and babies with pneumonia. When she couldn’t reach her patients with her Model T Ford, she resorted to traveling on horseback, rowboat or on foot.”

Tickets are $10 and the usual admission fee to the park is waived for this event

For more information, visit the park’s web site.
