“Dr. Justina Ford: Two Strikes and 7,000 Babies”

Posted by jean.CGHS@gmail.com

Dr. Justina Ford overcame two strikes against her, race and gender, to become the first African-American female doctor in Colorado. She embraced her adopted community of Denver, in which she delivered over 7,000 babies. Columbine member, Joyce Lohse, will share genealogy resources used to write Dr. Justina Ford: Medical Pioneer, the award-winning first title for the young-adult "Now You Know Bio" series from Filter Press. She will also discuss being interviewed about Dr. Ford for the Rocky Mountain PBS Colorado Experience series.
