Please join the library and the Missouri State Museum to learn about some of Missouri’s most significant trailblazers in this monthly series of programs in honor of Missouri's Bicentennial. What is a trailblazer, you might ask? A trailblazer is someone who has impacted our culture through major events, leadership, innovation and more! In July, we'll highlight Dr. Suzanne Saueressig, the state's first female veterinarian.
Honored as Woman Veterinarian of the Year in 1972, German-born Dr. Suzanne Saueressig is credited with the progression of Missouri’s Humane Society headquarters clinic, which is one of the Midwest’s largest veterinary practices. A lifelong advocate for ending animal suffering and pet overpopulation, Dr. Saueressig was a pioneer in bringing awareness to these problems and improving surgical methods. Additionally, she has been an inspiration for both young women and immigrants in Missouri, showing them that anything is possible. Presented by the Missouri State Museum's education specialist, Carrie Hammond.
Ages 10-adult. Please register to receive a Zoom link.
