  • Waze was helping me avoid traffic today and I suddenly realized I’d just driven past the little house #DrLeilaDenmark once used as her doctor’s office. I used to take Katherine there when she was an infant. Dr. Denmark was the oldest pediatrician in the country at that time, a co-developer of #pertussis, the whooping cough vaccine. I didn’t take Katherine to her because she was old, but because she was wise. So much wisdom, especially about food. She was the first one who told me how bad sugar was, and she was the only one telling parents kids should be getting calcium from veggies, not cows’ milk. I won’t even go into how she told us to start introducing solid food into our babies diets, but it was brilliant. She was a #supercentenarian, living to 114 years old (3rd oldest US citizen at her death). I also took Sydney, but probably only once or twice. One time my grandpa from California was here and I asked him if he wanted to go along. I didn’t explain who we were going to see because I thought he’d think I was crazy. Turns out he’d read about her extensively and was absolutely THRILLED to meet her — like she was a celebrity. If she hadn’t had a roomful of kids to see, we would’ve been there all day. The first picture is her “office,” the second is her home, the third is the giant high school named after her and completed in 2018 (sad I did such a bad job showing the photo of that beautiful school). If you want to watch a little film clip about her and what they’re doing w the house, see the link in my bio.
