about the speaker

A pediatric neurologist, amateur historian, and vice chair of the History of Neurology section of the American Academy of Neurology, I give frequent talks across the country on the history of women in medicine. I delve into the evolution of medicine in America from 1800 until now, touching on cultural and institutional changes that created new obstacles for women and minorities in the quest for acceptance as physicians, and discuss ways that we can increase representation, here and now, of excluded groups – including including transgendered/nonbinary individuals; people with disabilities; and more. This medically-related talk is perfect for Woman Physician’s Day, Black History Month or Women’s History Month – or just a Grand Rounds that is a little different and focused on diversity.
