You are cordially invited to the next NLM History of Medicine lecture, to be held on Tuesday, 12 March, 2013 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., in the Lister Hill Auditorium, National Library of Medicine, Building 38A, Bethesda, MD. In recognition of Women’s History Month, NLM presents:

“Dr. Sarah Loguen Fraser’s Legacy of Social Justice in Medicine”

Sarah Berry, PhD
Hobart & William Smith Colleges

This presentation will address Dr. Fraser’s entrance to medicine as the daughter of abolitionists, her career emphasis on providing healthcare for underserved African Americans, Native Americans, and Dominican women and children, and what a recovery project that continues the work of NLM’s “Changing the Face of Medicine” exhibition can teach students about historical and present intersections among health, medicine, and justice.

All are welcome.
