Women's History Month, as an official observance, may have come to an end but the recognition of women's achievements is year-round! Recently in March, the Levy Library team curated the Women in Medicine Special Topics Collection.
While women have traditionally held caregiver roles within their families, it was not until relatively recently that women began practicing in mainstream modern medicine. Groundbreaking women have pushed forward in the face of gender bias and discrimination to advance the field and to work towards equity in both representation and quality of care. This collection was created to put a spotlight on pioneering women in medicine both past and present, many of whom are responsible for breakthrough contributions and discoveries.
