I am SO EXCITED!
Why, you ask?
There’s an AMAZING new book series and it highlights women in medicine.
Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler: Doctress of Medicine (Women Leaders in Medicine Series Book 1)
The first book is titled “Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler: Doctress of Medicine (Women Leaders in Medicine Series Book 1)” If you have kids (or even if you don’t) you need to get this book!!!!! This book was written by a dear friend (Dr. Sheryl Recinos) and the book was dedicated to yours truly *tear*.
This is Book 1/ 27 of a children’s’ book series celebrating the life of female physicians. This first book is about Dr. Rebecca Lee Grumpler, a black female physician who earned a “Doctress of Medicine ” in the 1800s. She finished medical school the year before the civil war ended and she was an author also.
Each book will discuss a different Woman Leader in Medicine. This is a great way for your kids to learn intersection history from an author who is an amazing woman in medicine herself.
These books are short (32 pages each) and a great read for everyone, but especially kids ages 6-9.
GET THIS BOOK ASAP!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
From the author Sheryl Recinos MD :
” I chose Loucresie Nichelle (AKA Lou Nichelle) for Book #1 because she inspires me to be my very best and fight bias in medicine. She leads a group of strong lady doctors and helps educate us on issues that cause great disparities in healthcare. “
