Frances Ivens Lecture 2024
Pioneering Health Equity: The Life & Medical Career of Dr. Virginia M. Alexander

In this year's annual Frances Ivens Lecture, Prof. Gamble will examine the life of Dr. Virginia M. Alexander (1899-1949) an African American physician-activist who crafted a career that combined medicine, research, and activism to become a leading pioneer of racial justice and health equity. This talk will examine her personal and professional biography to illuminate the role of racism in American medicine and the frequently unrecognized history of African American women physicians to combat it.

This event is co-hosted by the Centre for Health, Arts, Society and Environment (CHASE) the Centre for the Study of International Slavery (CSIS), the Department of History and the Department of Public Health, Policy and Systems.

This lecture will be taking place on the 11th of March from 5.30pm in Lecture Theatre 1 of 502 Teaching Hub, followed by a Q&A and wine reception in the 1st floor foyer.
