Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America’s Women Physicians was developed by the Exhibition Program of the History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health Office of Research on Women’s Health. The American Medical Women’s Association provided additional support.

The exhibit was available for six weeks at AHSL starting in February 2009. 

Local Legends, a companion gallery to the Changing the Face of Medicine exhibition, highlights the contributions of women physicians in rural and urban towns and cities throughout America. Nominated by a Congressional representative, each extraordinary local legend has made a positive, enduring contribution to the health care of their community and our country.
