    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Join historian Susan Wilson for a talk on her new book Women and Children First: The Trailblazing Life of Susan Dimock, M.D. In 19th Century America, it was assumed that woman patients would be treated by male doctors. The idea of a "woman doctor" was deemed by many to lie somewhere between unfathomable and repugnant. Then along came Susan Dimock. A young North Carolinian who dreamed of becoming a physician, she grew up to practice medicine in Boston. By the 1870s, she was arguably the best-educated, most-skilled woman surgeon in the nation. Dimock's life reads like an adventure story, from recoiling at slave auctions and witnessing Civil War battles to escaping her fire-engulfed Southern hometown, then finding her place among Boston's most enterprising women.
