Janice Nimura’s new book, The Doctors Blackwell, comes at a doubly fitting time.

It’s about, obviously, a pair of doctors — and who isn’t thinking about medical professionals right now? — who also happen to be trailblazing women.

Sisters Elizabeth and Emily weren’t exactly embraced warmly when they first entered the medical field, but by the times of their death, their contributions were undeniable.

Nimura appeared on NPR’s Fresh Air to discuss her book and what we can learn from these women’s stories.

You can read excerpts from the interview or the entire transcript of it on NPR’s website or listen to the conversation below.
