Local authors Kim Greene-Liebowitz, Katharine Miao, Rachel Kowalsky and Dana Corriel will discuss their book, What We Bring to the Practice of Medicine, a collection of compelling, nonfiction essays that capture the essence of being a woman in medicine, and allow the reader a glimpse behind the white curtain. The essays are relatable and require no medical background. The authors will share their own experiences in medicine, the backstory of how the book came to be, and a little bit about the history of women in medicine. Hint - it starts much farther back than you'd expect!
Whether you're a physician, a patient or just curious, we'd love to see you!
