Nimura DESCRIPTION:Join LILRC in welcoming Janice P. Nimura\, author of the upcoming book\, The Doctors Blackwell: How Two Pioneering Sisters Brought Medicine to Women and Women to Medicine (W. W. Norton & Company\, January 19\, 2021). \n“The world recoiled at the notion of a woman doctor\, yet Elizabeth Blackwell persisted―in 1849\, she became the first woman in America to receive an MD. Her achievement made her an icon―“I am convinced that a new & nobler era is dawning\, for Medicine\,” she wrote―but her sister Emily\, eternally eclipsed\, was the more brilliant physician. Together they founded the first hospital staffed entirely by women\, in New York City.”\n \nJanice P. Nimura received a Public Scholar Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities in support of her work on The Doctors Blackwell. Her previous book\, Daughters of the Samurai: A Journey from East to West and Back\, was a New York Times Notable book in 2015. Her essays and book reviews have appeared in the New York Times\, the Washington Post\, the Los Angeles Times\, the Chicago Tribune\, Salon\, and LitHub\, among other publications. \nRegister @ LILRC URL: LOCATION:Online Via Zoom\, NY\, United States CATEGORIES:Continuing Education,Webinar ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
