The Doctors Blackwell book cover

In 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman in America to receive a medical degree. A few years later her younger sister Emily also earned her M.D. Together, the sisters started the first hospital staffed entirely by women. A new biography, “The Doctors Blackwell” details these and other accomplishments. Author Janice Nimura is this week's guest.
