An upcoming episode about women’s health on Big Picture Science, a broadcast and podcast that airs on 150 public radio stations, is featuring a segment on Rebecca Lee Crumpler and the work of Victoria Gall and Melody T. McCloud, MD, (CAS’77, MED’81) to get Crumpler recognition.
Listen to the hour-long episode, Lady Parts.
A medical pioneer, Crumpler, became the first Black woman doctor in the U.S. during the Civil War. Until recently, she lay in an unmarked grave. Big Picture Science tells her story, and her remarkable contributions to preventive medicine, in their special episode about women’s health.
