Reaching Out to Serve

Cover Story:

When she was a young girl, Heather Schaper had a vision of being a "black-bag" doctor similar to the character she witnessed on the popular television show, "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman."

The fictional Dr. Michaela Quinn, who practiced medicine in Colorado in the 1860s, had strong bonds with her community and showed great care toward her patients. Schaper wanted to be like her.
