Women in Duke Health Exhibit

In March, the Duke Medical Center Library & Archives debuted its newly redesigned and updated online exhibit of Women in Duke Health.

Highlighting women in multiple fields at Duke, many of which were pioneers or firsts in their disciplines, this exhibit looks at their stories and the context in which those stories took place. The primary method of inquiry for context in this exhibit was via oral histories, a unique format that allows for both.

This historical perspective is presented through individual profiles and interviews, a general timeline of events, and background interviews conducted with people who have a longtime view of Duke Medicine. For most individuals you will find a brief biography, photo, audio file, and transcript.

There will always be women pushing boundaries in Duke Health so this will remain an ongoing project. We welcome your feedback!
