Author Talk on Book Women Physician Pioneers of the 1960s

We invite you to join Susan E. Detweiler, MD, on March 16 at noon for a presentation on her book, Women Physician Pioneers of the 1960s: Their Lives and Profession Over a Half Century.

As a member of the historic longitudinal study begun in the 1960s of female physicians educated at UCSF, Detweiler brings to life the full story of these remarkable women in Women Physician Pioneers of the 1960s: Their Lives and Profession Over a Half Century. A graduate of Wellesley College and UCSF, Detweiler also holds a Master of Fine Arts in Writing from Spalding University. Her over two dozen professional publications have appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, the American Journal of Surgical Pathology, Ultrastructural Pathology, and other medical journals. Her non-medical publications include essays in The Writer’s Chronicle, The Missouri Review (selected among Notable Essays of 2012 by The Best American Essays 2013), and on the web sites of the Seattle Opera and Physicians for Social Responsibility.
