7:00pm [7:00pm] From Doctors to Doulas: The Art and Heart of Women Healers
Description:
Women have always been healers. From wise medicine women of ancient times to the "birth ambassadors" of our own era, the caring female practitioner (and patient advocate) is a central figure in the history of healing as well as the history of women's place across cultures. But there is even more to the story: Women are also change-makers in the health sector. Nurses, midwives, doulas, feminist psychiatrists, health educators, caregivers, and others have all played a vital role in reshaping the way health care is framed and delivered. This talk will illuminate some of the key figures and historical trends that continue to shape the way we view the healing arts in contrast to what some have called "the deadly science of modern medicine."
