Each of these exhibitions consists of six graphic banners. Rise, Serve, Lead! highlights the lives and achievements of 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.
Rashes to Research looks at the 1964 rubella epidemic, during which 20,000 children were born with serious heart, hearing, and vision problems related to rubella exposure during pregnancy. While the nation’s scientists rushed to create a vaccine and develop better screening tests, families faced difficult, complicated decisions about current and future pregnancies.
