In honor of this year's Women's History Month theme, Providing Healing, Promoting Hope, Dr. Betsy Garrett will share her research about the earliest female graduates from the University of Missouri School of Medicine, starting with Anna Searcy who earned her degree in 1900. Adults. Please register for a Zoom link. Will be recorded for later viewing.
Anna Searcy earned her medical degree at the University of Missouri in 1900, yet few know of her or the other early women graduates of our school of medicine. When Dr. Betsy Garrett was serving as the first woman president of the medical school alumni association, she learned that the 100th anniversary of Dr. Searcy’s accomplishment was going to occur during her tenure. She vowed to learn more about Anna Searcy and her compatriots, and she has uncovered many wonderful stories. In honor of this year's Women's History Month theme, Providing Healing, Promoting Hope, Dr. Garrett will introduce you to the first six women who graduated from the MU School of Medicine, 1900-1908. They each were truly remarkable. And the history of basketball at MU also figures into the story!
Adults and teens. Please register to receive a Zoom link. We'll also record the program for limited time viewing on our YouTube channel.
