"In 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman in the US to earn a medical degree when she graduated from Geneva Medical College, a small school in western New York. She only got in because the male students thought her application was part of a hoax."
"Blackwell’s younger sister, Emily, was the third woman in the US to earn a medical degree."
Thank-you Elizabeth for bravely paving the way for women in medical careers!

A pretty fantastic thing to be able to celebrate in my view. Interesting too that her sister followed suit - an amazing achievement for them both.
