"Aperture 2: Portraits of Women Faculty in Medicine," and Dorothy Horstmann Portrait, Will Be Dedicated on Wednesday, Nov. 20

November 11, 2019

Please mark your calendars for November 20, 2019, when we will host a reception at 4:30 p.m. in the Beaumont Room celebrating "Aperture 2: Portraits of Women Faculty in Medicine." Hosted by the YSM Committee on Art in Public Spaces, the Committee for Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (CDISJ), the Committee on the Status of Women in Medicine (SWIM), the Minority Organization for Retention and Expansion (MORE), the Office for Women in Medicine, and the Yale Women’s Housestaff Organization (YWHO), this event opens the second part of a series of photographic portraits of women faculty on display on the second floor of Sterling Hall of Medicine.

At this time, we also will unveil the portrait of Dorothy Horstmann, MD. A noted epidemiologist whose work on the poliovirus laid the groundwork for the development of a vaccine, in 1961 Dr. Horstmann became the first woman at the School of Medicine to earn tenure as a full professor.
