The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) announces Rise, Serve, Lead! America’s Women Physicians, a banner exhibition and companion online adaptation.

Rise, Serve, Lead! highlights the lives and achievements of over 300 women physicians who have made a difference through their medical practice and research, work as activists, service as administrators, and mentorship to the next generation of physicians. It presents a selection of the physician biographies featured in the 2003 NLM exhibition Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America’s Women Physicians, showcasing the work of these doctors to connect to a contemporary audience.

The online version of Rise, Serve, Lead! includes an education component featuring a new K-12 lesson plan and a digital gallery of works from NLM Digital Collections. These books and journal articles were authored by some of the doctors profiled in the exhibition and give a view into both their scientific research and experiences in a male-dominated field.

The banner exhibition will be on display beginning March 18, in commemoration of Women’s History Month, through the month of March in the Rotunda of the first floor of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Building 38 on the Bethesda, Maryland campus of the National Institutes of Health.
