A History of Healing: Cambridge Women in Medicine by Cambridge Historical Society
July 21, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Tuesday, July 21, join us for a History Café with Dr. Ellen S. More, Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine for a discussion of the role of Cambridge women in the medical profession in the 19th and early 20th centuries. This program is a part of our year asking “Who Are Cambridge Women?”
We’ll be asking:
- How did women blaze a path for themselves in this male-dominated field, and how did their history as caregivers both help and hinder them in this process?
- How did the Civil War, Reconstruction, and World War I change both the scientific landscape of medicine and the place of women in this rapidly-evolving field?
- What lessons can we take from the stories of these Cambridge women that can inform our contemporary challenges around gender, professionalization, and work-life balance?
- Tuesday, July 21
- 6-7 PM via Zoom
- Free (donations welcome)
- Registration is required. After registration, you will be emailed information about accessing the program.
