Is there a (female) doctor in the House? Soon, Dems hope

When Dr. Nadia Hashimi was a seventh-grader in Ramsey, N.J., she and a friend convinced the local board of education to ban Styrofoam from school cafeterias. It taught her an early lesson in the art of persuasion. Today, Hashimi is still talking about science and trying to make a change — but she's doing it on a much larger political stage. Hashimi, a pediatrician and novelist, is seeking the Democratic nomination in Maryland's 6th District.
