Filling In The Gaps

Africa has had a hold on Jane Blood-Siegfried, PhD, RN, CPNP, ever since she was a girl, when she lived in Liberia with her family and, among other things, cared for a succession of orphaned baby chimpanzees, one of whom slept in a crib in her room and occasionally clambered up onto her bed and plucked the rollers out of her hair. Her family left Liberia, where her father had been stationed as a U.S. State Department official building schools, when she was 15.
