Dr. Yvonne Thornton Discusses “Something To Prove” on Nurse Talk Radio Show

Written by yvonnethornton on January 4th, 2011

The week before Christmas, I was a guest of co-hosts (and registered nurses) Casey Hobbs and Dan Grady on the award-winning “Nurse Talk,” a radio show with a sense of humor similar to the popular NPR show, “Car Talk.”

You can listen by clicking the link below (I’m the second guest, so I’m a bit after the halfway point), but stay for the entire show. It’s a lot of fun – and you’ll learn a lot, too. Nurse Talk with Dr. Yvonne S. Thornton, author of Something To Prove

And if you’re in New York City, please be sure to stop by and see me tonight, January 4, 2011, at 7 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 2289 Broadway at 82nd St. (212) 362-8835. The event is free and everyone is invited.

– Yvonne S. Thornton, MD, MPH

    Dear Dr. Thornton, I’ve just finished your new book, “Something To Prove” and loved every bit of it. I hated having to finish it. It felt like I was leaving a good friend and her family. I so enjoyed meeting you last Saturday at B&N in Eatontown, NJ, with other members of our Tinton Falls Library group. We had read “The Ditchdiggers Daughters” and were amazed at all that you and your sisters had accomplished. You are a wonderful woman to know and now I know a little bit more about you and your family – your husband and Woody and Kimmie, of which (I most certainly know) you are very proud of. I hope that I will see you again some time. You have such a wonderful zest for life and a great sense of humor. You’ve accomplished so much and I’m very glad to have met you and read your books.

    Hey Dr. T- We were sitting here in Morristown Memorial Hospital on Mother’s day, and Fran Donahue, our secretary, said she saw you on c-span books last night. We got reminiscing about you. Liz Fredericks and I wanted you to know that we were thinking of you fondly and wishing you continued success. You go girl! Please know that you still have friends at MMH! Love, Julie wood
