Item #: Patricias Vision (HC)
Availability: In Stock

Born in the 1940's, Patricia Bath dreamed of helping people as a doctor, even though that wasn't a career option for most women at that time - especially African American women. This empowering biography follows Dr. Bath in her quest to save and restore sight for blind people. She co-founded the American Institute for Blindness, invented a laser device for removing cataracts with less pain and more precision, and became the first African American female doctor to receive a medical patent. Age: school age. 

Written by Michelle Lord. Illustrated by Alleanna Harris.
