Grab your lunch and take a break – Come to Biotech Commons for Penn Medicine’s Women in Medicine event

Today – September 9 – the Biotech Commons is proud to host a viewing of Jasmine Brown’s talk about her upcoming book, Twice as Hard: The Stories of Black Women Who Fought to Become Physicians from the Civil War to the 21st Century.

Looking for a break from studying? Or something to do while you eat lunch? Come join us at Biotech Commons! We’ll be in the Collaborative Classroom, with plenty of table space.

Hosted by Penn Medicine’s Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (OIDE), this live virtual event is one event celebrating Women in Medicine Month.

Jasmine Brown began writing TWICE AS HARD when she was twenty-two. A 2018 recipient of the Rhodes Scholarship, she used her time at the University of Oxford to complete the in-depth research and oral histories synthesized in this book. In the spring of 2020, she graduated from Oxford with Merit, earning an M.Phil. in History of Science, Medicine, and Technology. That fall, she began medical school at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Brown leverages her connection to her topic to create a work that is both immensely well-researched and personal.
