Description: Born months apart, and dying in their 9th decade within weeks of each other, Elizabeth Blackwell and Florence Nightingale were lifelong sparring partners. But what they shared in common, including guiding values and mutual respect for the role of women in society, outweighed their differing pathways to success. How did they meet, compete, collaborate, and challenge each other? Most importantly, why do we remember them today, and what is their connection to Syracuse, NY?

    Looking forward to hearing Dr. Mike Magee present these two impressive women who changed the course of medicine in the 19th century. One in the nursing profession and the other in the medical profession.

    Dr. Magee’s depth of experience in the American health culture always provides an interesting perspective on whatever subject he takes on. As a mere old retired lawyer, kicked around a bit by cancer, my interest is not so much in the subject but in the presenter whom I have known for more than half a century. Looking forward to seeing you again Mike.

    This “mere old retired lawyer” was a great roommate for 4 years, and retains a sharp insightful mind and a warm and giving heart. Appreciate that! Mike
