C130 - Eponymous Women in Neurology I

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): Stephen Reich MD, FAAN
Description: A method commonly used to study the history of medicine is the biographical approach; this is sometimes referred to as the “great man approach,” tracing history from one dominant leader to another. But, this neglects the many “great women” who have also made important contributions. Many of these “great men” live on by the diseases and signs they described which bear their name. Eponymous woman have received less attention and many neurologists are unable to name a single disease or sign described by a woman and are unaware that many commonly used eponyms are attributed to women. This course will highlight women who live on eponymously in neurology. The disease or signs they described will be reviewed along with a biographical sketch of each. This program complements C146: Eponymous Women in Neurology II, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize the important contributions of selected women to neurology and have a better understanding of the disease or signs they described; and be familiar with the lives of eponymous women in neurology as well other contributions by these women which are not preserved eponymously.
