A Lady Alone: Elizabeth Blackwell, MD, First Woman Doctor in US
A one-act, one-woman play, written by N. Lynn Eckhert, MD, Harvard Medical International followed by a Networking Reception

Dr Blackwell earned her medical degree in 1849 from Geneva Medical College (Hobart and William Smith College), although her admission as a female candidate was considered a joke (to the administration) and an irritant (to the students). She became the founding physician for the innovative New York Infirmary for Women and Children, an institution staffed by women doctors for women patients.

Dr Eckhert was inspired to write this play after visiting Hobart and William Smith College with her son on a college tour. "It is a story that needed to be told." She conducted meticulous research, using the original Blackwell family letters. Modelled in the style of William Luce's play about Emily Dickinson, The Belle of Amherst, A Lady Alone is performed by Linda Kelley, a professional actress.
