Summary
The story of Mayo Clinic begins on the Minnesota prairie following a devastating tornado in 1883. It also begins with the women who joined the growing practice as physicians, as laboratory researchers, as developers of radium theory and cancer treatments, and as innovators in virtually all aspects of patient care, education, and research. In tracing the perspectives of more than forty of these women, this book introduces a new perspective on the history of both Mayo Clinic and women in medicine.--
