[/caption] The baobab tree is often referred to as "The Tree of Life" in Africa, and one of the reasons for this name, is because of the healing oils that come from the seeds of the baobab fruit. Baobab oil is used throughout Africa for its healing properties, but as the extraction process is very time-consuming, it tends to be more of a luxury oil as it costs a little bit more than some of the other oils.

[/caption] Among the many African American nurses who have contributed to the profession, few are as distinguished as Mary Elizabeth Carnegie. She made history by breaking through racial roadblocks, championing the cause of the black nurse for more than 50 years, and paving the way to a more integrated future. In a day when African American nurses were to be "seen and not heard" she spoke up, held her ground, and fought for equal rights. She was the first black nurse appointed to the board of the Florida Nurses Association. Carnegie received eight honorary doctorates and countless awards, including the George Arens Pioneer Medal from her alma mater, Syracuse University, the President's Award from Sigma Theta Tau International, and the Living Legend Award from the Association of Black Nurse Faculty in Higher Education.
