National Women Physicians Day

Elizabeth Blackwell

“Let’s celebrate this upcoming February 3. It is the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to receive an M.D. from an American medical school in 1849. She is best known for her tireless support of medical education for women and her public reform work. It is also the day that the Physicians Mom Group (PMG), a non-profit organization of almost 50,000 women, is declaring National Women Physicians Day. This day would celebrate all the significant contributions that women physicians make daily, none of which would have been possible without Elizabeth Blackwell.”

Here is a link to the rest of the article by Dr. Vanita Braver entitled, “Happy Birthday Elizabeth Blackwell: The ABCs of Extraordinary Women Physicians.”

Happy National Women Physicians Day!
