Wellcome Library Insight - Women, health and healing


This week's free Wellcome Library Insight session - on Thursday 10th March - explores the changing role of women in medicine and attitudes to female healers through the centuries, with historical material drawn from the Wellcome Library’s collections.

Our Insight sessions offer visitors to the Wellcome Library an opportunity to explore the variety of our holdings. Sessions are thematic in style, last around an hour and offer a chance to learn about our collections from a member of Library staff.

This Thursday's session starts at 3.00pm. Spaces are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. For more details, see the Wellcome Collection website.
