The days when white men filled physician positions and nurses were expected to be only women are far behind us. A far more diverse team of employees populates today's medical facilities. This edifying volume highlights the rocky road traversed by so many to get where we are today, as well as the gaps that continue to exist, supported by eye-opening statistics. Inspiring figures featured throughout emphasize the hard work and perseverance of some of medicine's most brilliant and determined figures, such as revolutionary ophthalmologist Patricia Bath and physician Kumar Bahuleyan. Dr. Bahuleyan used his skills and wealth to bring medical care to his poverty-stricken hometown.
