From Tobacco Fields To Neuroanatomy

Zero to Eighty Over Unpaved Roads: A Memoir
Evelyn McNeill


  Growing up on her family’s tobacco farm in Lee county,  Evelyn McNeill expected a future like that of her peers: getting married, having children and building a home life.  But she decided to take a different path and joined the Army to become a physical therapist. She went on to earn a medical degree and became the first female faculty member of East Carolina University’s School of Medicine.  Host Frank Stasio talks with Dr. Evelyn McNeill, a retired professor of neuroanatomy, and the author of “Zero to Eighty Over Unpaved Roads: A Memoir” (Garcia Publishing Company, 2013). 

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
