  • Medicine in America: Sister Kenny and Polio
    Professor Rogers is now completing a book on the Australian nurse Sister Elizabeth Kenny and her highly visible and controversial transformation of polio care in the US during the 1940s and 1950s, time she spent in the US, and a time when Gallup polls identified her at one point as the most admired woman in America (above Eleanor Roosevelt). The work is rooted in Australian as well as North American research, and has been presented to Australian as well as North American audiences.
