Mary Breckinridge, the pioneer

Mary Breckinridge founded what today we would call the first Integrated Home Care, where nurses and midwives reached the most remote places thanks to horses, faithful substitutes for the modern white Panda (a type of Fiat car, very famous in Italy) that drive our colleagues in the territory. Frontier Nursing Service continues to train nurses and midwives today.
