The Roles of Women in Medical History, R.E. Fulton

Thursday August 5th at 6:00pm on Zoom: The Roles of Women in Medical History, R.E. Fulton

Register Here.  This talk will discuss the variety of roles that women played in the medical field in the United States prior to the twentieth century, using Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, a lifelong activist who became the first woman to serve as a surgeon for the US Army, as a case study. Dr. Walker’s career demonstrates the roles that women could take in healthcare outside of the traditionally “feminine” positions of nurse or patient. This program is part of a series of educational talks sponsored by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
