A FORSYTH LECTURE EVENT — with author and historian Susan Wilson
Thursday, May 10th at 6PM
Follow the life of Dr. Susan Dimock of the New England Hospital for Women and Children as she broke the rules to which women of the mid-nineteenth century were “supposed to” adhere. Dr. Dimock became a healthcare pioneer earning a medical degree in Zurich and developing the first professional nursing school in the nation. Join us for a talk about her remarkable story and many accomplishments as we celebrate her 171st birthday.
After the lecture, you’re invited to accompany Susan Wilson on a short walk to visit the grave of Dr. Dimock for some additional storytelling.
