Air Guard’s ‘Baby Doc’ overcomes early health condition to become leader in pandemic battle

Undeterred by a rare health condition early in life, Nevada Air Guard 1st Lt. Caleena Longworth is now on the front line of health care in southern Nevada during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Few in the state have vaccinated more people than Longworth, who has personally administered the vaccine to more than 4,000 people while acquiring the nickname “Baby Doc” from her health care coworkers given her youthful appearance. And she did that all while finishing her medical doctorate at University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine this spring.
