7,000 Babies: The Legacy of Justina Ford, MD

| All Day

Dr. Justina Ford (1871-1952) was the first Black female physician licensed to practice medicine in the state of Colorado. Denied membership in Colorado Medical Society and privileges at Denver General Hospital because she was both Black and female, Dr. Ford instead treated patients out of her Five Points home.  She cared for her patients no matter who they were with an attentive heart, skilled hands, and a mothering mind.  Imbued with an indefatigable work ethic, Dr. Ford delivered over 7,000 babies during her fifty year career as a doctor.
