Changing the Face of Medicine Exhibit coming this week

Women doctors are the focus of a new traveling exhibition on display at the Hardin Library for the Health Sciences from October 11 through November 30.

Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America’s Women Physicians tells the extraordinary story of how American women who wanted to practice medicine have struggled over the past two centuries to gain access to medical education and to work in the medical specialty they chose. The University of Iowa Libraries is one of only 60 libraries across the country that has been awarded the traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine.

Remarkable Women in Health Care is the University Libraries local site for the exhibit.   The site includes a calendar of programs.
