2/2/2024 - Today, I thank Helen Octavia Dickens who earned her medical degree in 1934 and was the only Black woman in her graduating class. 11 years later, in 1945, Dickens became the first Black woman to receive board certification in obstetrics and gynecology. Woo hoo! So the kick-butt ladies in the photo under her are all obstetricians at Women's Physician Group and they all  supported me with delivering my newest baby. πŸ˜‡β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜
