From Managerial Void to the Medical Mile:  The Evolving Roles of Women and the Enduring Presence of History 

October 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Fleshing out the history of women founders of early Grand Rapids medical institutions, GGRWHC’s Julia Bouwkamp will reveal a pattern where they were pushed from the centers of organizations they had created to the more feminine realm of nursing. Despite their marginalization, these nineteenth-century women exploited limiting ideas about gender to continue the expansion and sophistication of our medical world.

 Co-sponsored by the Greater Grand Rapids Women’s History Council, the Grand Rapids Historical Society, & the Grand Rapids Public Library
