Product Description
This is a bundle of 3 highly animated, power point presentations on Pioneering Women of Medicine - Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, Florence Nightingale & Clara Barton. The total number of slides is 62. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

Power Point #1 is entitled Famous Women of Medicine – Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell and contains 18 slides and covers the following:

Elizabeth Blackwell was born in Bristol, England but as a girl, she moved with her family to the United States, where she first worked as a teacher. Despite widespread opposition, she later attended medical college and graduated first in her class, from Geneva Medical College in 1849, thus becoming the first woman to receive her M.D. in the United States.

She supported medical education for women and published several important books on the issue of women in medicine, including Medicine as a Profession for Women in 1860 and Address on the Medical Education of Women in 1864. At the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861, she helped organize the Woman’s Central Association of Relief and the U.S. Sanitary Commission under the auspices of President Abraham Lincoln and worked to select and train nurses for war service.

In 1869, Blackwell moved permanently to England where she set up a private practice and in November 1868 she consulted with Florence Nightingale to open the Woman’s Medical College at the infirmary. She also helped organize the National Health Society in 1871, and in 1875 was appointed professor of gynecology at the London School of Medicine for Women.

As her health declined, Blackwell gave up the practice of medicine in the late 1870s. After many successful publications Blackwell became ill and died on May 31, 1910, in Hastings.

Power Point #2 is entitled Famous Women of Medicine – Florence Nightingale and contains 30 slides and covers the following:

Florence Nightingale, was a trailblazing figure in nursing who greatly affected 19th & 20th century policies around proper care. She defied the expectations of the time and pursued what she saw as her God-given calling of nursing.

During the Crimean War, she and a team of nurses improved the unsanitary conditions at a British base hospital, greatly reducing the death count. She was known for her night rounds to aid the wounded, establishing her image as the 'Lady with the Lamp.'

Once the Crimean conflict was resolved, she returned to her childhood home, meeting with a hero's welcome, which the humble nurse did her best to avoid. The previous year, Queen Victoria had rewarded Nightingale's work by presenting her with an engraved brooch that came to be known as the "Nightingale Jewel" and by granting her a prize of $250,000 from the British government.

By the time she was 38 years old, she was homebound and routinely bedridden, and would be so for the remainder of her long life. Fiercely determined and dedicated as ever to improving health care and alleviating patients’ suffering, Nightingale continued her work from her bed. Residing in Mayfair, she remained an authority and advocate of health care reform, interviewing politicians and welcoming distinguished visitors from her bed

Eager to follow her example, even women from the wealthy upper classes started enrolling at the training school. Thanks to Nightingale, nursing was no longer frowned upon by the upper classes; it had, in fact, come to be viewed as an honorable vocation.

Her writings sparked worldwide health care reform, and in 1860 she established St. Thomas' Hospital and the Nightingale Training School for Nurses. A revered hero of her time, she died on August 13, 1910, in London.

Power Point #3 is entitled the American Civil War Key Leaders – Union – Clara Barton and contains 14 slides and covers the following:

Clarissa Harlowe "Clara" Barton was a prominent nurse in the American Civil War who later founded the American Red Cross.

In addition to being a hospital nurse, she worked as a teacher, patent clerk, and humanitarian. At a time when relatively few women worked outside the home, Barton built a career helping others. She was never married, as she knew the restrictions of a married woman at the time, but had a relationship with John Elwell.
