Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910): Today as we launch our mini-series on women in medicine, what better place to start than with a two-part series on Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman doctor? Join us today as we begin the story of this determined Quaker woman who overcame constant opposition, prejudice, and rejection in order to attend an all-male medical school and begin to fulfill her calling from God to become a doctor.
