SATURDAY, MARCH 16: HEALTH CARE PIONEERS

Profile America — Saturday, March 16th.  Two young women, who were the first Americans of their gender to enter their professions, are highlighted during this Women's History Month.  Lucy Hobbs Taylor was the first to receive a degree in dentistry, graduating from the Ohio College of Dental Surgery in 1866.  And this month in 1883, Susan Hayhurst became the nation's first woman pharmacist, when she graduated from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy.  She's further distinguished by obtaining that degree while already being a physician.  Now there about 98,000 dentists across the U.S. — with offices employing over 825,000 people.  Among the nation's 186,000 pharmacists, women comprise over 52 percent.   You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
