These mini docs were created to celebrate International Women's Day, for the empowerment of young women and those who have dreams of entering into the medical field someday. I hope these two stories inspire all women to go after the profession they want, regardless if that field that is normally male dominated. And I hope they inspire all moms and dads out there with young girls to keep encouraging them to be anything they want to be when they grow up.

Meet Addie, a seventh grader who wants to be an oncology nurse when she grows up. Christy Snyder, RN, met with Addie for the day to talk to her about oncology nursing and encouraged her to follow that path.

Meet Josie, a fifth grader who wants to go into the medical field, but wasn't sure what she wanted to do most. Since she loves caring for kids, we thought it would be perfect for her to meet Beth Steh, MD, a pediatrician with Springfield Clinic.
