Dr. Mae Jemison: Astronaut and RPCV
|By JimHitter on Tuesday, January 07, 2003 - 5:32 pm: Edit Post|
Regarding the article about Dr. Mae Jemison I would like to point out that Dr. Jemison is not an RPCV. She served in Freetown as the PCMO and had a considerably different lifestyle than PCVs. If my memory serves me properly she did have a personal relationship with a PCV stationed in Freetown. My personal experience with her was not positive--she was averse to traveling outside of the capital city, her recommendations were "off-the-wall" and impractical and her "bedside" manner was that of the beginning doctor that she was. She was not comfortable physically touching patients, was (anecdotally) said to have mishandled some patients. One of her recommendations was to boil(!) shower water. We tried to explain to Dr. Jemison that putting screens up on our windows was not practical because there was no screen material available and she got quite mad at the PCVs for such a suggestion. She also tried her best to restrict PCVs from coming to Freetown for medical attention by instituting per-diem rates/rules that were unrealistically strict and impossible to comply with.
My own experience with other PCMOs has been generally positive having been PC connected in Sierra Leone, Micronesia and Kazakhstan.

Pleae inform the public if there is any proof to this story posted by Jim Hitter on Tuesday, January 7, 2003-5:32 p.m., since every story is suppose to be based on facts. This seems to be just a personal slander, fir whatever purpose Jim is posting it. Only he knows the true reason for this article. But I am truly interested on how requesting boiled water for showers & screen for windows could make someone so irrate. Does it really make a differences how someone help? If a benevolent act is done for the betterment of an entire group dispite one individual inconvience. Our Government make those types of choices daily basis,but no one dare make a written statement concerning it. Those who may are very cautious about what they write or say.

Hello, my nephew is doing a report on Mae Jemison. He is in the 3rd grade. Truly he's enjoying writing his report on a black woman pioneer. I am thankful that he does not have to see the negative garbage that is being written and I truly thank the Lord that negative input does not change the output of wonderful people of all colors.
