Throw Back Thursday

Throw Back Thursday- Anyone recognize this surgeon? Loving this classic pic from Dr. Fox’s early days in the OR. Dr. Fox was one of the first female surgeon’s in the Capital District. She worked back when the hospital’s only dictation machine was in the men’s locker room, not the women’s (and they were upset she requested that change!) Interesting that today, “even though women now comprise more than half of medical school enrollees and 35.2% of all active physicians, they are often scarce in the surgical field. According to 2017 data from the AAMC, women make up less than one-quarter of 10 surgical specialties, and are the least represented in orthopedic surgery, at 5.3%. Only in obstetrics and gynecology do women outnumber men, at 57%.” (https://www.aamc.org/news…/where-are-all-women-surgery) It is important we all encourage young women, as well as young men to consider surgery! It would have been a loss to us all if this female surgeon didn’t follow her dream… ❤️❤️❤️
