Women in Duke Health

This exhibit highlights women in Duke Health by revealing their individual stories and the context in which they took place. Oral history, the primary method of inquiry for this exhibit, is a unique format that allows for both.

Women in Duke Health offers a unique historical perspective from women in multiple fields at Duke, many who were pioneers or “firsts” in some way in their disciplines. For more context about these women, please see the individual biographies and interviews, timeline, and background interviews.
