Augustana Lutheran Church
Wednesday, March 15 1:30 p.m.

Service League member and retired pediatric pulmonologist will talk about the differences in the way men and women practice medicine.  For many years, Lucy has been thinking about writing a book about "how women do medicine."  After retiring from a 30-year career as an academic physician, she found time to write the book.  As one of 6 women in a class of 80 when she received her degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in 1972, she will share real life stories of the challenges she and other women physicians faced, the changes they have made and their contributions to the field of medicine.
