Diversifying Medicine: Triple Triumph Panel at Coming Back Together
Three women physicians, as students, doctors and faculty members, faced discrimination of many kinds. These powerful pioneers, Sharon Brangman, Patricia Numann and Ruth Weinstock, created programs that earned the highest levels of national distinction and acclaim. Their work and their names are now legendary—in geriatric medicine, in the treatment of breast cancer and in diabetes research and treatment. Their stories and the lessons to be learned from them are the focus of “Triple Triumph,” a new work published jointly by Syracuse University Libraries and Syracuse University Press.
CBT attendees are invited to a preview panel discussion on Friday, Sept. 15, from 1-2 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, 114 Bird Library. Brangman, internationally eminent geriatrician and African American SU alumna, and Numann, who opened the field of surgery to women, will be on the panel. Attendees will receive an advance copy of the publication and have the opportunity for discussion with the panel. The full publication can be viewed online here.
