Mary Guinan, MD, PhD: Adventures of a Female Medical Detective
Celebrate Women's History Month with this Book
Mary Guinan, M.D., Ph.D., became an important figure in history as an epidemiologist working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to eradicate small pox around the globe.
As March is Women’s History Month, it’s especially appropriate to reflect on her accomplishments. Dr. Guinan was both a spectator and participant to events that shaped medical history, including cracking the code to AIDS. She also worked to change the course of history, focusing on sexually transmitted diseases in women while mainstream medicine worked primarily on STDs in men.
