When Jeannie was four years old, she was diagnosed with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva by the Mayo Clinic (TGWTB). Because this is one of the rarest diseases in the world, this name didn’t really mean anything to Jeannie’s mom.

Board of Education consisted of 5 different cases with a similar premise, but the well-known story of behind the groundbreaking event began in Topeka, Kansas with a man named Oliver Brown. Due to the segregation laws in Kansas at the time, his third-grade daughter, Linda, could not attend a nearby white school and had to trek a mile to a bus stop to attend a black school that was much further away.

She had lacked access to healthcare for most of her life because of her race, and so when she was diagnosed with cancer she ended up at Johns Hopkins Hospital, because it was one of the few hospitals on the east coast that allowed the treatment of African Americans. It was on her death bed in John Hopkins, that some cells were taken from her without her permission, which was not ethical. It was those cells that were immortalized in a culture and are now called HeLa cells. HeLa cells, while not ethically sourced have been an amazing cell culture. They have been used to develop the polio vaccine and invitro fertilization, and the cells are still being used for drug development today.

I had asked her what other careers there were in healthcare and she briefly mentioned a few. However, physician assistant stood out to me. Not long after, I shadowed a PA at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the interventional radiology department to gain more insight. I admired his ability to perform a procedure alone, which is only possible after the radiologist and the PA are confident this can be done safely and with high quality.
