I'm Audie Cornish.<p>Dr. Leila Denmark led an exceptional life. She fought hard to become a doctor when women were largely shut out of the profession and helped research and test the whooping cough vaccine. She then opened her own practice and spent the next 71 years caring for child patients and their parents. Dr. Denmark died this week at the age of 114. That's right, 114.<p>Charles Edwards of member station WABE in Atlanta has this remembrance.<p>CHARLES EDWARDS, BYLINE: Dr. Fri, 06 Apr 2012 19:00:00 +0000 Charles Edwards 24533 at http://weku.fm
