To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to graduate from a United States medical school, the Women in Medicine Legacy Foundation (WIMLF) and the Center for the History of Medicine, Countway Library, invite you to a dramatic presentation honoring her life.
Join us for the first-ever enhanced Zoom presentation of portions of N. Lynn Eckhert, M.D., Dr PH’s one-woman play, A Lady Alone. Following the production, Dr. Eckhert, a Senior Lecturer at Harvard, will be joined by both featured actress Christine Farrell and director Kevin Confoy, both theater professors at Sarah Lawrence College, for an interactive discussion about Dr. Blackwell’s historical relevance to women in medicine.
A Lady Alone has been performed as both a dramatic reading and a solo performance at venues across the country including the Association of Medical Colleges, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the New York Academy of Medicine and numerous medical schools and historical societies.
