Behind the Scenes at the White House

Pictured at left is Nancy Reagan during her years as First Lady. With her is Captain Joan Huber, USN, then Senior White House Nurse and now Adjunct Assistant Professor of Nursing at Colby-Sawyer College in New London.

Huber served on the Presidential medical staff from 1986 until 1990. On Wednesday, May 25, at 7 pm, she will talk about My Life at the White House: Personal Reflections on Experiences in the Reagan and Bush Administrations. Her recollections provide a fascinating look at things we don't usually see--the close-at-hand presence of medical personnel during press conferences and other public events, the advance planning for trips abroad, and the continuous monitoring of not only the President's health, but also of that of the First Lady, the Vice President, and the wife of the Vice President. Huber will also show photos and other mementos of her White House years.
