We learned this week of the passing of Lucille Horn, who was one of Dr. Martin Couney’s incubator babies in the 1920s. As part of a sideshow on Coney Island, Lucille helped pave the way for modern neonatal intensive care. We are remembering her contributions today, and we’re very grateful she was able to share her remarkable story with us!
