In the 1960s, before there was a school nurse program, public health nurses educated at UC often went to schools to check children's vision, hearing and growth records. As part of the Cincinnati Health Department, the Public Health Nursing Service also did clinic work and made home visits to new mothers and their babies.
Jeannie Frank Loechtenfeldt, Nur '63, (left) was a supervisor for the health department when this picture was taken in April 1967 at Carson Elementary School in Price Hill. She has been doing home nursing care for a private agency in Michigan for the past 17 years.
Pictured at the scale is Marty Wilt McDaniel, Nur '66, who also became a health department supervisor for Cincinnati and for the city of Norwood, then later worked as an instructor in the community nursing program for both Good Samaritan and Bethesda Hospitals. She now lives in Bowling Green, Ky.
2011 Update: On the back of the photograph, the students are identified (in ink-pen handwriting), from left to right, Pippi Hamley, Terri Catucci and Roger Deardorff.
