Product Description

Legends and Legacies: Personal journeys of women physicians and scientists at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center features the inspirational stories of 26 accomplished women physicians and women scientists on the faculty of The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. The women profiled in these autobiographical essays represent diverse ages, background and cultures and various professional roles, from clinicians and physician scientists to basic scientists and veterinarians. Legends and Legacies is the cumulative story of women who overcame hardships, biases, and their own self-doubts to pursue their passion for research and helping others. These stories of passion, perseverance and success serve as an inspiration to young women considering a career in science or medicine as well as a road map for working women in terms of balancing work and family. All of the women physicians and women scientists in this book strive for a better quality of work life by balancing work and family. As women scientists and women physicians enter the workforce in ever increasing numbers, leaders who are academic mentors and recognize the value of optimizing talent by improving the quality of work life will hopefully find this a valuable resource and discussion tool not only for young women in medicine and women in science but for all young professionals. All of the women in this book speak to the importance of at least one academic mentor in the realization of their dream. Legends and Legacies book is edited by Elizabeth L. Travis, Ph.D, Associate Vice President of Women Faculty Programs, Mattie Allen Fair Professor of Cancer Research, The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.. Price: $21.93
