Oneeka Williams, a surgeon who is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, has recently published her first children’s book. Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Mission to Pluto leads children to outer space where Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo-Super Surgeon on the Go learns that Pluto is sad because its status was downgraded to a dwarf planet. Dr. Dee Dee, traveling on Freeda the Flying Ambulance, travels to the outer reaches of the solar system to perform surgery to rescue the fortunes of what was once the ninth planet.
“Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo is truly the embodiment of everything I hold dear,” says Dr. Williams. “Dr. Dee Dee is caring, dynamic, energetic, positive, powerful, spunky and believes that ‘Not even the Sky is the Limit’. She heals with her hands, brings surgery and science together and loves her family.”
Dr. Williams is a native of Guyana and was raised in Barbados. She is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University, where she majored in biophysics. After graduating from Harvard Medical School, she completed surgical training at Massachusetts General Hospital and The Lahey Clinic.
