Breaking the Back of Polio (book excerpt)

From the Yale School of Medicine website is an excerpt, "Breaking the Back of Polio," from the David M. Oshinsky, PhD book, Polio: An American Story. The article highlights the work of physician and early polio science researcher, Dorothy Hortsmann, MD, whose work "would pave the way for both the Salk killed-virus polio vaccine and the Sabin live-virus polio vaccine."
