The Ozuna Library celebrates Women's History Month with an exhibit titled Rise, Serve, Lead Women America's Women Physicians from the National Library of Medicine Traveling Exhibition Service. This exhibit highlights the achievement of American women in the field of medicine. Women have always been healers. To join the ranks of professional physicians, women had to overcome obstacles and fight to practice medicine. They rose to the challenge and have served as doctors for nearly two hundred years. Rise, Serve, Lead! America’s Women Physicians focuses on how women physicians have made a difference through their medical practice and research, their work as activists, their service as administrators, and their mentorship to the next generation of physicians. The exhibit will be on display March 4-31, 2024 during the Ozuna Library’s hours of operation.
